Boko Haram: Burns Military Base, School, Hospital In Yobe
Suspected Boko Haram Insurgents attacked Katarko community in Gujba local government council of Yobe State. In the attack, which took place at about 5:30am, they also set the military base on fire, burnt down a primary school and a healthcare centre located in the community.
The burnt primary school was renovated by Victim Support Fund a few years ago after the insurgents first burnt it down in 2013.
Villagers said the gunmen also invaded the primary healthcare centre in the village and set the facility ablaze after looting its drugs store.
Katarko community which is 19 Kilometers south of Damaturu, the state capital, has been under attack several times this year alone.
