Gaidam town in Yobe State was on Wednesday evening attacked by suspected Boko Haram insurgents, according to Daily Trustreport.

Residents in the town told Daily Trust that the attackers stormed the town around 5:30pm, and started shootings sporadically.

A resident said the insurgents took advantage of the Market Day to infiltrate the town.

“Although they forewarned residents of their coming days back, so the military were not taken unaware,” he said.

He said that, already, two Nigerian Air Force jets arrived the town to support the military strength.

He said that shooting was still ongoing as at the time of filing this report.

However, no statement has been released by the Army.
