Residents Lament 2 Weeks After Boko Haram Killed 20 In Yobe Village

Residents of Ngurum village in Gulani LGA of Yobe state are lamenting the apathy of government and security agencies two weeks after suspected Boko Haram insurgents attacked their community and  killed more than 20 people.

A leader of the community, Alhaji Musa Ngurum said hundreds of displaced residents of Ngurum are in dire need of assistance after the insurgents burnt down their community.

Alhaji Ngurum said in a statement that the suspected insurgents who launched their attack from a mountain close to the village  numbered around 50.

Alhaji Ngurum claimed that the attackers left about 250 buildings in the village completely burnt  and also destroyed hundreds of livestock, food and vehicles.

“Attempts to contact the officials of Gulani LGA for help failed as virtually all of them have relocated to Damaturu the state capital,” he said.

He however said that later that ‘‘men of the Nigeria Army unit in Bara headquarters of the local government and the ones stationed in Buni Gari, arrived the scene later and were able to save lives that wold have been lost.”
