Boko Haram insurgents have launched an attack on Babban Gida, the headquarters of Tarmuwa Local Government Area in Yobe State, a few days after attacking Damaturu, the capital of Yobe State.
A resident of Babban Gida, Alhaji Gidado, informed newsmen in an interview that the suspected insurgents had initially attacked a military formation, shooting sporadically, before carting away some food as they broke into food stores.
The Commissioner of Police in Yobe State, Abubakar Sahabu, confirmed that his Divisional Police Officer in Babban Gida informed him of the attack.
He added that the situation was being investigated by the police who had also asked the military for further assistance.
The police commissioner, however, added that the situation was calm and gunshots had ceased.
