Gunmen in the early hours of Tuesday burnt down a school ‘military base’, and health facility in Katarko village in Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State.
The primary school which was burnt around 5:30am was renovated by the Victim Support Fund a few years ago after the insurgents first burnt it down in 2013. An NGO had stored food items in the school for distribution but the insurgents got the information and decided to attack the school and loot the items.
Villagers said the gunmen also invaded the primary healthcare centre in the village and set the facility ablaze after looting its drugs store.
“We heard them shouting Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! after the early morning prayers and shooting sporadically. Everyone ran indoors until about one hour when they finished their operation and left the village.
