Gaidam town in Yobe State has reportedly been infiltrated by suspected Boko Haram insurgents.
Residents in the town said that the attackers stormed the town around 5:30pm, and started shooting sporadically.
A resident said “The insurgents took advantage of the Market Day to infiltrate the town.”
“Although they forewarned residents of their coming days back so the military were not taken unaware,” he said.
He added that two Nigerian Air Force jets have arrived the town to support the military strength.
