Boko Haram kidnaps Yobe district head of state

On Thursday January 7, Boko haram attacked Geidam Town in Yobe state as they also kidnapped the District head.

According to Eyewitnesses they stated that the terrorists looted goods before setting some shops ablaze. They also torched the house of a former chairman of a local government, Dr. Mulima Mato.

According to the Yobe state police command (ASP Dungus Abdulkarim ) he said the police recovered a burnt Hilux Vehicle which contains two bodies and it was not clear if the bodies were some of Boko haram members or not.

However, Abdulkarim said the insurgents went to the general hospital and ordered the nurses to give first aid treatment to their colleagues, before they escaped.

Following the attack, Governor Mai Mala Buni has ordered the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) to move to Geidam and support the victims.

The Governor who commiserated with the residents and described the incident as unfortunate, said “the attack will not deter the government in its efforts to rebuild, reconstruct and rehabilitate communities destroyed by insurgents.”

A statement signed by his spokesman, Mamman Mohammed read;

“The government and people of Yobe State will continue to partner security agencies for the return of peace and security across the state.”
