Suspected members of Boko Haram are said to have ransacked Kukawa Town in Borno State on Monday, October 27, leaving 3 people dead.

The insurgents also set fire to a police station and reportedly burnt 300 cars as well as several buildings within the area.

A member of the community, Mallam Abor Kanembu narrated details of the attack saying that the Boko Haram members arrived in vehicles and on motorcycles and began shooting residents at will.

He said:

“The insurgents burnt down the Kukawa Divisional Police station and some public buildings in the town. I cannot tell the casualty figure because we had to flee the town in fear of our lives.”

Another resident, Mohammed Mafindi confirmed the incident saying that three people had been killed in the attack which occurred between 4:00 am and 10 am.

He said:

“The attack was a reprisal to an attack earlier attempted by the men of the Nigerian police Force, who were on routine patrol in the area in which they opened fire on the insurgents.”

“The insurgents immediately responded by killing two policemen, and abducted two others while two policemen escaped into the bush”

The caretaker chairman of the Kukawa Local Government Area, Alhaji Modu Musa reportedly said that the terrorists killed many people and burnt down several houses as well as over 300 vehicles.
