A distress call has reached media outlets after Gunmen reportedly invaded a Technical College located in Yobe State.
The gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram terrorists were said to have invaded the Gaidam Local Government Area of the State on Wednesday, April 20 at about 9 pm.
TopNaija understands that Gaidam is the hometown of the immediate past governor, now Senator Ibrahim Geidam located north of Yobe state.
Reports reaching the media house revealed that the terrorists attacked and burnt down a Technical College in the town.
Source confirmed that the terrorists entered the town silently on foot from different directions and caused bloodshed after setting ablaze the Technical college.
Reporting the incident, Vanguard revealed that twin brothers were victims of the attack.
One of them reportedly died on the spot while the other has been hospitalized, currently responding to treatments at an undisclosed medical centre.
Confirming the incident, Executive Chairman of Geidam, Hon Ali Kolo who spoke on the phone said he was informed of the sad incident.
He confirmed that the insurgents killed and also invaded some parts of the council destroying properties worth millions of naira.
Although he said, he was in Saudi Arabia for the lesser hajj, it is unfortunate for him to have received a distress call on the renewed attack, even as he said, details on casualties are still sketchy.
He said: “Based on the information at my disposal, Boko Haram has so far killed, invaded Gaidam and razed down some structures including Technical College when I am in Saudi Arabia for the lesser hajj.
“I also gathered that twin brother were among victims of the casualty.”
Kolo told the reporters that he is already making panic-struck efforts to get in touch with relevant security agencies.
According to him, there is no concrete evidence as to whether the attack has been repelled as insinuated.
