Suspected gunmen have again reportedly attacked Kanamma, headquarter of Yunusari Local Government Council of Yobe State on Thursday night.

The attack is coming barely one week after suspected Boko Haram insurgents invaded the Geidam community displacing over 6,000 residents.

Spokesman of the Nigeria Police Force in the state, ASP Dungus Abdulkarim, who confirmed attack to Channels Television said the incident happened on the outskirts of the community.

“As a matter of fact, Boko Haram insurgents attacked an outskirt of Kanamma Thursday night, unfortunately, we have lost contact with our people there due to the absence of a mobile network in the area, we will update you when we reach out to them,” he added.

Kanamma which shares a border with the Niger Republic and 34 kilometers away from Geidam, was the community where suspected Boko Haram elements were first sighted in 2004 before they moved to Maiduguri the Borno State capital, and started their deadly attacks in 2009.
