Suspected members of dreaded Boko Haram terrorist group have attacked a military base fighting thr terrorists in Kamuya village of Buratai ward of Biu Local Government Area of Borno state.
During the attack, they sacked the soldiers at their duty post, before carting away arms and ammunitions belonging to the troops.
Sources alleged that three soldiers were feared dead after the attack. Kamuya is located about 6 kilometres to Buratai, the village of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai.
The sources said the incident took place on Wednesday, but due to lack of communication network in the area, as it was vandalized, information about the attack had to be delayed before getting to the press.
The source said, “There was a bloody attack on a military camp in Kamuya by suspected terrorists on Wednesday.
“The attackers first succeeded in sacking the soldiers at their duty post, after which, they invaded the camp and carted away with huge arms and ammunitions.
“It was also gathered that three soldiers were feared dead with the setting ablaze of the entire camp” the source said.
All effort to get confirmation from the Police PRO, DSP Victor Isuku proved abortive as his phones were not reachable at press time.
