Many civilians were feared killed and several property destroyed as suspected Boko Haram insurgents attacked Gubio and Magumeri towns in the northern part of Borno State on Wednesday night, a report this morning by Daily Trust said, quoting unnamed reliable sources.

“The attackers stormed Gubio town, headquarter of Gubio LGA at about 5:40pm and open fire, forcing residents to run into bushes,” the report, which was accompanied with photos of destroyed buildings and charred bodies, said.

It quoted a vigilantes source as saying that the insurgents proceeded to Mugumeri town at about 9:00pm where they killed several people and destroyed property worth millions of naira.

“They walked freely in our town, many houses were burnt and telecommunications mast equally burnt, many are feared dead. We can’t tell you how many people were killed but certainly many lost their lives,” the vigilante source reportedly said.
