Gunmen suspected to be members of the Islamist sect group Boko Haram on Monday torched the Bara Divisional Police Station, Gulani local government council secretariat complex and telecom masts of MTN and Globacom, with Improvised Explosive Devices, IEDs, and rocket propelled launchers at 1.30 a.m. A policeman who attempted to protect the station from being set ablaze lost his life in the process.

Eyewitnesses say the gunmen also snatched three vehicles belonging to the council, including a Toyota Hilux van, and fled towards Buni/Yadi, adding that the gunmen that overpowered the policemen at the council headquarters, operated for over three hours, before they succeeded in torching the station and telecom masts in the council area.

Bara is the council headquarters of Gulani, 160 kilometres south of Damaturu, the Yobe State capital.

Yobe State Police Commissioner, Sanusi Rufai, while confirming the incident said the gunmen employed rocket propelled launchers, IEDs and petrol bombs in torching the police station and telecom masts, noting that no arrest had been made.
