Gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram members have attacked the town of Geidam in Yobe.
It was gathered that the insurgents in eight vehicles and carrying weapons invaded the town around 6pm.
A resident of the town who spoke to our correspondent over the phone said, “Their motorcade moved straight to the location of Kafela primary school as they started sporadic shooting.
“We are currently indoors praying for our safety, that’s all I can say for now”
The Police spokesman Dungus Abdulkarim has confirmed the attack adding that an air force fighter is already in Geidam providing reinforcement.
