Boko Haram terrorists on Monday invaded Magumeri Local Government Headquarters of Borno state razing down the only functional Telecommunications mast before setting ablaze other infrastructural facilities.

Just last week, some terrorists invaded surrounding communities of Magumeri and displaced hundreds of farmers and herders, after killing 6 others with an unspecified number fleeing their residents with sustained gunshot injuries.

Magumeri is north and about 40km drive from Maiduguri, the state capital which has witnessed series of Boko Haram attacks including the abduction of Oil Exploration Workers and staff from the Department of Geology, University of Maiduguri, on a mission around the shores of the Lake Chad Basin.

Our Correspondent reports that the insurgents invaded the community at about 4 pm, while the military airstrike engaged them as the insurgents succeeded and infiltrated the Council Headquarters which made it difficult for the airstrike to engage the terrorists amidst innocent civilians.

Member Representing Magumeri, Gubio and Kaga federal constituency, Hon Usman Zannah, in a telephone call confirmed the fresh infiltration of Boko Haram in Magumeri Council.
