Another source, Mustapha Bassa, said bandits in their numbers rode on motorcycles with each motorcycle carrying 3 people and they shot sporadically as they moved into the communities.

He said motorcycles, houses and food banks were set ablaze during the attack.

Earlier this month, terrorists suspected to be from the Boko Haram sect killed at least five military personnels in an ambush.

The incident happened along the Biu-Buratai-Buni Yadi road, a path that has remained a death trap, as it has witnessed a series of deadly attacks in recent times.

Among those killed are a lieutenant Officer, a driver, gunner, four other soldiers.
