According to Daily Trust, two farmers were also reported to have been killed while houses, food banks and motorcycles were burnt by the attackers.

The attack started around 9pm on Friday and lasted for hours.
One of the sources who didn’t want his name mentioned said “Six soldiers lost their lives and one volunteer hunter.”

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.
