Some residents were said to have been killed from stray
bullets as the policemen engaged the terrorist numbering over 300 in a fierce battle.

Over 700 people have been reportedly killed by the gunmen
in Jibia, Kankara, Dutsinma, Musawa, Danmusa and Safana local government areas of the state in the last five months.

of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara. They were released about a week later.

Islamiyya in Mahuta village, Dandume Local Government Area of the state were abducted but rescued shortly after.

LAGOS STATE

Fire
razes shops under Apongbon bridge.

 

Many shops have been destroyed in a fire outbreak at
Apongbon market in Lagos Island.

The fire, which broke out on Wednesday morning, has caused
a gridlock on the Eko Bridge.

The cause of the inferno is yet to be determined as of
the time of filing this report.

However, the federal and Lagos fire services are at the
scene of the incident, trying to put out the fire.

In a tweet via its Twitter handle, the Lagos State Traffic
Management Authority (LASTMA) announced that the fire outbreak has resulted in the slow movement of motorists and advised that they use alternative routes.

It tweeted: “There’s currently a fire incident underneath
Eko Bridge which has resulted in slow movement of motorists.

“Motorists who are yet to connect Eko Bridge are advised
to use alternative routes such as Third-Mainland Bridge and Carter Bridge.

“Emergency Responding Agencies like Fire Service, LASEMA,
LASTMA are all on ground.”

DAILY POST reports that this is coming less than two
weeks after a three-storey building in the Mushin area of Lagos State
was
gutted by fire

following the explosion of a tanker discharging Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) at a nearby petrol station.
