The Boko Haram sect burnt at least 73 houses and 28 shops in Borno within the last seven days, according to the state government.

Yabawa Kolo, executive chairman of the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), made this known while briefing Babagana Zulum, the state governor, during an assessment visit to the villages, on Saturday.
She disclosed that on Thursday, Boko Haram insurgents attacked villages in three local government areas including Gubio, Magumeri and Konduga.
“In Borri, 17 households and four shops were burnt. In Wanori village, 34 households and 18 shops were also set ablaze while 22 households and 6 shops were torched in Kaleri-Abdule village, bringing the total of houses affected to 73 and 28 shops,” she said.

In his remark, Zulum assured residents and community leaders affected ‎by the attack of immediate reconstruction of houses destroyed.

He said the destroyed properties will be replaced by modern houses.

The governor said he received assurances from President Muhammadu Buhari to enhance security in state.

During the visit, the governor held discussions with youth volunteers under the Civilian JTF, who have been helping with community policing. He assured them of his support to ensure adequate policing.
