Boko Haram Blows Up Bridge Linking Maiduguri With Damaturu And Biu

Gunmen suspected to be members of the dreaded Boko Haram sect over the weekend blew off the popular Madafuma bridge linking 185km Biu-Damboa-Maiduguri federal road, damaging a remarkable portion of the bridge and leaving motorists and passengers stranded.

The road which has remained a death trap for the past two years with terrorists ambushing motorists and passengers living hundreds dead with the kidnapping of innocent civilians have to be abandoned as most people of Biu, Garkida, Numan, Shani, Taraba resorted to traveling through Gombe state which now took them up to 12 hours instead of normal 3 or 5 hours Journey to Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.

In less than 10 days ago, there was a massive ambush on the road where the terrorists sacked the 195 Battalion if the 7 Division of the Nigerian Army, after killing the Commanding Officer along side a Divisional Police Officer and over 15 soldiers and 6 policemen.

The bombing of the bridge according to Mallam Musa Yakubu took place on Saturday at about 2am when people were asleep.

“We heard a loud bang on Saturday and on Sunday morning when we gathered in Madafuma village to go round our surroundings early in the morning, we found out that the bridge linking us with Biu local Government Area and Ma Dara Girau has been blown off, all motorists heading to Maiduguri from Biu especially long vehicles had no option than to make u- turn back to Gombe, unfortunately, small vehicles had to manage the remaining thin portion which has not been affected in the blast, but it is very risky”. Yakubu stated.

The north east part of Nigeria has been experiencing attacks by Islamist sect group Boko Haram, which says it wants an Islamic state.
