Several persons have reportedly been killed and others injured in an aerial bombardment in Buwari community, Yunusari Local Government Area of Yobe State on Wednesday. 

A source in the community confirmed the incident to Channels Television, explaining that those injured in the incident are receiving treatment at the General Hospitals in Geidam and Gashua.

Meanwhile, the Air Force has denied carrying out any bombing in the said area in the past ten days.

Spokesman Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet said the claim that a NAF jet bombarded Buhari village and killed about ten people while injuring many others is false in its entirety.

“This tweet is false in its entirety. The NAF last conducted a mission in Yobe State (not Yunusari LGA) on September 5, 2021, and it was an armed recce. No bomb or missile was even expended,” he said.

With the denial, the Multi-national Task Force may then be the chief suspect, although the Air Force said it would probe the attack.

Reports on Wednesday said nine people were killed in the aerial bombardment of Buhari village.

The bombing occurred near the market.

The report said the bomber was targeting Boko Haram or ISWAP camps, when the bomb was accidentally dropped on the village.
