gathered that other victims of the
attack are being hospitalized at the Geidam General Hospitals for various injuries.

A security source who does not want to be mentioned because
they have no authorisation to speak with the press on the matter said the insurgents arrived on motorcycles at the outskirts of the town and entered the town on foot and went straight to the bar to unleash mayhem on its occupants.

“They came by foot and burnt three staff quarters at
the GSTC Geidam. We also got reports that they went to Augwar Kweri where some prostitutes are residing and kill 11 people there. At GSTC, I understand that only one person died,” said Idris Abubakar, a resident of the town.

The governor of the state,
Mai
Mala Buni
, recently lifted a ban on the use
of motorcycles in some parts of the state.

Motorcycles are the preferred means of transportation
by insurgents in the state.

Yobe State police public relations officer, Dungus Abdulkareem,
who confirmed the attack said one of the victims of the attack was a retired policeman.

Two females were also among those killed.

BENUE STATE

Fire
guts Central Bank of Nigeria branch in Benue.

The Makurdi branch of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN)
in Benue State has been gutted by fire.

The branch is situated in the Old GRA area of the Benue
State capital.

The fire, which reportedly started from the fuel dome
of the bank, quickly became ferocious thus drawing the attention of some workers who immediately raised an alarm.

The cause of the incident has yet to be ascertained.
However, it was learnt that the fire had been put out.

In April 2020, a fire outbreak was recorded at the CBN
office in Jos, Plateau State.

Three months later, a raging inferno gutted a section
of the apex bank in Gombe, destroying the office of the Branch Controller.
