Boko Haram Insurgents Burn Army Base In Yobe, Kill Three Soldiers, 171 Others Missing

Boko Haram insurgents have launched a major attack on the base of the special forces of the 27 Task Force Brigade, located in Ngomari in Buni Yadi and Kumuya in the Buni Gari area of Yobe State, killing three soldiers while about 171 others reportedly fled the base or are missing in action.

Military sources told SaharaReporters that the insurgents destroyed heavy military equipment and shared photographs of gun trucks razed by the insurgents.

“The terrorists attacked us on Friday morning. They attacked the military base and burnt it down. Three soldiers were killed, one injured, while about 171 are missing. The base is deserted but we have called in for reinforcements,” a military source said.

Gunmen Kill Traders In Fresh Imo Attack

According to Aminiya, a Hausa publication of Daily Trust, the killings were recorded last week.

Four people were reportedly killed in Orlu, while three were murdered in Amaka town.

Dr. Lawan Yusuf, a resident of Owerri, Imo State capital, blamed the attacks on members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

“Even yesterday, the IPOB attacked some northerners who sell meat and killed three people. We have already buried them.”

“Whenever they meet northerners in their business location, they ask whether they have a permit to live in Biafra and if they say no, they (IPOB) will beat you with weapons; many of our people have been killed that way,” he said.

S/East govs, Ohanaeze compiling names of IPOB, ESN members

The Indigenous People of Biafra has raised the alarm that South-East Governors, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, and others were compiling the names of its members and those of Eastern Security Network, to handover to the Federal Government for incarceration.

The secessionist group noted that the move was suggested to the leaders of the South-East geopolitical zone, in order to weaken its resolve and that of the ESN from flushing the Fulani herdsmen out of the zone.

The group further observed that since the formation of the ESN, efforts to flush out Fulani herdsmen out of the zone had intensified, regretting, however, that politicians, local authorities and others were sabotaging the efforts.

JUSUN Strike: Thousands of case files unattended, correction centers, Police cells congested

Sources say heaps of files in various courts in Cross River State have been left unattended due to a strike action embarked upon by members of the Joint Union of Staff Union (JUSUN).

Police cells and correction centres in Cross River State are reportedly congested as suspects are not being released on bail by the order of courts.

Speaking with DAILY POST, Ntufam MBA Ekpezu Ukweni, Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) lamented the non granting of financial autonomy to the judiciary, saying he was in support of the strike.
