Boko Haram members attack polling units in Gombe, two killed

Two people have been killed at two polling units in Birin Bolawa and Birin Fulani in the Nafada district of Gombe state this morning by Boko Haram members.

According residents of the villages who spoke with AFP, they said suspected members of Boko Haram stormed the polling units, attacked the electorates and killed two people. An election official who spoke with AFP under anonymity, said: “We could hear the gunmen shouting, ‘Didn’t we warn you about staying away from (the) election?'”. Phil Hazlewood is AFP's bureau chief in Nigeria

I thought there was adequate security in polling units, hot zones should have been manned by soldiers. We must Decide Today today

ary said...

I thought the army had dealt with these guys?! Guess they have assimilated into the society and that is even more scary.

Goaldyn Boy said...

APC and Buhari should be held accountable for any death or violence perpetrated at the polling booth!They are the the ones fighting against drafting the military near the polling booth...... APC are the ones buying Court Judgements from judges sympathetic to them inorder to prevent the Federal Govt from drafting Soldiers to protect lives and properties during the election!!!

This is why APC said they should not deploy the military during election to enable their military arm(Boko harm) have a field day killing innocent people. God will will alway give Nigeria victory.
