Boko Haram plots another attack on Biu 24 hours after foiled attempt

Barely 24 hours after they were repelled by soldiers, suspected Boko Haram gunmen have returned for another attack on Biu town in southern Borno State.

On Monday, at about 7 p.m., the insurgents made an attempt to invade Biu town after running over two nearby communities where two persons were killed and 13 others left with bullet wounds.

The attack took place hours after the state’s deputy governor, Umar Kadafur, arrived the town for the Christmas holiday.

The deputy governor who in the early hours of Tuesday visited the 13 injured victims in the hospital is still in Biu at the time of this report.
