In just less than a day before President Muhammadu Buhari embarks on his campaign visit to Yobe, the 27 task force brigade in
Buni Yadi, has been attacked by the Boko Haram insurgents.
Buni Yadi is also home to Nigerian Army Special Forces Training Schools.
A panic resident told our correspondent that the attackers arrived in 5 hilux vans laden with Anti Aircraft around 5:00pm and headed directly to the military location.
“I saw vehicles with Boko haram flags shooting sporadically and shouting “Allahu Akbar ” she said.
She said that her house and that of her neighbor were hit by bullets.
Another resident said the militants had engaged the army in serious gun dual but, there was aerial support by fighter jets in the town.
However, there’s been no statement from the military on the attack.
