Barely 24 hours after Boko Haram attacked three churches in Kaduna and Zaria, killing scores of people, gunmen yesterday evening bombed the State Security Service (SSS) office in Damaturu, Yobe State.
Though reporters could not ascertain the number of casualty, but sources said many might have died. Scores were said to be injured. The Joint Task Force (JTF) assisted the SSS in confronting the gunmen. An eyewitness who identified himself simply as Chris, said: “As I am talking to you now, there are gunshots around Sabo Pegi and Pompomari areas and most of the residents had hurried home and shut their doors in fear.”
Details of the attack were scanty by Press time even as the police command’s spokesman, Adamu Saliu, did not pick several phone calls
