#TRAGEDY AS: Boko Haram Insurgents Razes Ngalda and Fika Towns In Yobe State

Suspected Boko Haram insurgents on May 30, 2015, reportedly stormed two Yobe towns, burning down a police station and several government buildings.

Report has it that the militants attacked Ngalda and Fika towns, Fika LGA, on Saturday evening. In Ngalda they sized fuel and robbed provision stores. Then the insurgents invaded Fika.

According to a resident of Fika, Malam Ahmadu Maikano, the gunmen entered the town in two hilux vans and opened fire.

“They burnt down police station, local government secretariat, LEA and departments of health, works,”he said.

Fortunately, no casualties were recorded. However, Maikano disclosed that the locals had been suspicious of the fighters’ advancement.

“That’s why many residents didn’t sleep in Ngalda and Fika, we all fled to save places,” Maikano added.

Toyin Gbadegesin, Yobe state police public relation officer, could not confirm the incident but vowed to call the police commissioner in the area to clarify the matter.

In a related report, suspected Boko Haram insurgents on Saturday carried out two separate attacks in Maiduguri, Borno state capital. Many people were reportedly killed, but the official death toll is yet to be provided.
