Gombe Town, Bajoga, Under Boko Haram Attack

The sleepy town of Bajoga in Gombe state has come under intense attack by gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram insurgents, residents have told PREMIUM TIMES.

A PREMIUM TIMES reporter could hear sounds of gunshots and explosion as he interviewed a resident of the town, who telephoned to inform this newspaper of the development
"Sound of explosion and gunshots woke us up from sleep and we had to hurriedly leave to the outskirts of town where I am calling you from," said our source, who gave his name as Mr. Sunday.

 
Bajoga hosts the Ashaka cement plant, and the Boko Haram sect carried out a similar raid on the plant last month during which they reportedly carted away four Toyota Hilux vans packed with explosives.

The spokesperson of the Gombe State Command of the Nigerian Police could not be reached for comments at this time
