Boko Haram Launches Another Attack On Army Formation
The dreaded Boko Haram group have reportedly launched another attack on a military base in Baga, Kukawa LGA of Borno state.
The fresh attack is coming barely twenty-four hours after Boko Haram insurgents attacked Gudumbali area, a town in the Guzamala local government area of Borno.
According to information gathered by Naija News, the insurgents launched a fresh attack on Sunday on the military base in Baga, Kukawa LGA, after the attack on Gudumbali, on Saturday.
Ahmad Salkida, an independent investigator familiar with the Lake Chad and Boko Haram crisis, who tweeted the incident said the number of casualties on both sides is yet to be ascertained.
When attention was on #ISWAP attack on Guzamala yesterday, the group staged another daring attack on a military facility in Baga, Kukawa, on the shores of the #LakeChad. I’m not here to argue about military casualties, I’m concerned with the implications of these growing attacks?
