Suspected Boko Haram militants attacked and wounded three security operatives in Kanamma, the headquarters of Yunusari Local Government Area of Yobe State.
A resident who fled to neighbouring Niger Republic told our correspondent on Tuesday that the attackers stormed the town on four motorcycles, each carrying three armed men.
“They shot sporadically and everyone scampered for safety. They burgled soft drinks shops and loaded them onto two vehicles they seized from security operatives and fled,” he said
Police Public Relation Officer, ASP Toyin Gbadegesin, who confirmed the attack, said three security men were injured during the encounter while two were still missing.
“No human casualty was recorded. But three security men were injured while two others got missing. It’s difficult to ascertain the security personnel involved because there’s no mobile network in the area,” he said
