Civilians in Borno and Katsina States were, again, attacked on Saturday by Boko Haram and bandits.

Gunmen attacked Yankara town and neighbouring villages in Faskari Local Government Area of Katsina.

They killed Dikko Usman, the Sarkin Fulanin Fafu and Head of Mazoji village in Matazu Local Government Area.

PRNigeria reports that no fewer than 8 people were killed, while 10 others sustained injuries, with many missing.

The spokesperson of the Police Command in Katsina, Gambo Isah, said a statement on the incident would be released.

The attack occurred three days after dozens of people were killed in Faskari.

Also recently, Atiku Maidabino, the district head of Yantumaki in Danmusa Local Government Area, was murdered in his palace.

Meanwhile, Nigerian troops have repelled Boko Haram attempted invasion of Monguno in Borno State.

A military source said the insurgents stormed the town Saturday afternoon.

Gunshots rented the air as they attempted to overrun the town.

However, soldiers foiled the offensive with the help of aerial intervention.

The source said while the ground troops engaged the terrorists, a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) jet destroyed vehicles conveying them.

“The terrorists suffered heavy casualties. Jets bombarded eight vehicles carrying them”, he added.

  1. The technically decimated and defeated Boko Haram has woken up or resurrected to cause mayhem in the President’s own state, what a shame, FGN.

  2. But come to term, what has Nigeria done wrong or what sin has this nation committed to warrant this senseless, gory and wanton destruction of human lives and properties? Only God will judge these marauding monsters or beasts.

  3. One of the major reason this present government was elected is that they promised to end Book haram insurgency. If they can’t handle it again let them resign this killing is becoming too much

    1. Don’t mind politicians they will promise heaven and earth but when they get to the desired sit they will do nothing but God is watching them all

  4. Buhari promised to wipe out Boko haram within 6 months yet, through out first tenure nothing was done to fulfill that promise, and now in his second, can he fulfill that promise for us?
