“From there, they proceeded to Ngulde community in Askira Uba LGA, but we were able to subdue them with the help of hunters.
“The quick intervention of vigilantes saved the situation as the terrorists escaped after sighting lights of the hunters’ patrol vehicles,” he said.
The chairman, Northeast Hunters/Vigilante Group, Shawulu Yohanna, confirmed the attack, adding that his team was quick to respond and prevent the terrorists from attacking the next community.
