He said they immediately set the Police station and the local government secretariat ablaze.

“The gunmen then went to the house of an Islamic cleric named Adamu Misira and opened fire on him and other people numbering over 10 that were there with him, killing all of them. They had earlier killed the soldiers on duty at the checkpoint between Gombe and Yobe states, located in Nafada,” said the resident, who pleaded for anonymity.
