Residents of Pulka in Gwoza were forced to flee their homes when the militants arrived

  • Published: , Refreshed:

Members of the dreaded Boko Haram sect have again invaded a community in Borno leaving death and destruction in their wake.

The insurgents reportedly attacked Pulka village in the Gwoza area of the state, barely 24 hours after they took over a police college in the same area.

The latest attack took place on Thursday, August 21,2014 and the militants were said to have hoisted their flags in the village to show conquest.

The village was left in ruins as houses, cars and shops were reportedly burnt and the attackers opened fire on the members of the community.

An unnamed source told Vanguard:

 “Yes some Boko Haram terrorists invaded Pulka and killed many innocent people and destroyed  a lot of  houses before hoisting their flags in different locations of Pulka.  We,  the people of Gwoza are very  worried with the spate of killings and destruction by terrorists without  military or security agencies confronting them.

“The terrorists are now having a field day in any community they storm in Gwoza. Just last Wednesday, the terrorists invaded the Police  Mobile Training Camp in nearby Limankara village and took over the facilities on ground.”

The Gwoza community has been constantly bombarded by Boko Haram after the sect dethroned their Emir and appointed another to take his place.
