Boko Haram razes 40 houses in reprisal attack in Guzamala- Police
The Borno police command on Monday says Boko Haram insurgents had burnt down 40 houses in a reprisal attack in Mailari village in Guzamala council in Borno state on Sunday. Demien Chukwu,

The State Commissioner of Police, who disclosed this in a conference
at the command on Monday, says the terrorists stormed the town at
about 8pm.

Chukwu said that the command was yet to ascertain the number’s casualty.

“Two weeks earlier, the vigilante in that community arrested a Boko
Haram element with an AK47 and after beating was handed over to the
military.

“The marauding militants who were pissed with the development decided
to lunch the massive attack to revenge the arrest. They passed several
villages on their way to Mailari.

“Luckily enough about a week ago we deployed one full unit of police
man including SARS to protect the community.

“Consequently, while they were returning from their mission, they were
repelled by our team on patrol which prevented them from raising down
the entire community, “he said.

On the Alau Dam attack, Chukwu, said that pre-military investigation
had revealed that the dam came under attack by suspected Boko Haram.

Chukwu said “Initially it was not clear if the affected dyke was
washed away due to lack of maintenance or if it was actually
vandalized.

He said that the insurgents had actually tempered with the embankment
holding back the water, leading to flooding in Kayamla village.
