Dapchi Town has again witnessed the havoc from some suspected Boko Haram members, as they sacked the town which is the headquarters of Bursari Local Government Area of Yobe State.
Channels Television reported that the insurgents carried out the attack on Wednesday evening in Dapchi, about 100 kilometres from Damaturu, the Yobe State capital.
Recall that it was Dapchi where Leah Sharibu and about 100 students of Government Girls Science Technical College were abducted in February 2018.
The insurgents were said to have invaded the town and set some residential houses and government structures on fire.
When contacted, the acting Assistant Director of Army Public Relations, Sector 2 of Operation Lafiya Dole, Lieutenant Chinonso Oteh, said the details of the incident were unclear.
He, however, promised to give an update as well as the causality figure if there was any.
The attack comes two weeks after some insurgents stormed the town and set ablaze the telecommunication networks in Dapchi.
Boko Haram terrorists have been fighting jihadists’ war in some parts of the North, but Nigeria’s government have been trying to stop them.
