Barely twenty four hours when some gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram sects ambushed motorists in Borno villages of Gwoza- Firgi- Ngurosoya federal highway, which led to the death of five passengers including one person on his way to Maiduguri to attend his brother’s wedding, another set of terrorists ambushed motorists along the troubled Maiduguri-Damboa- Biu road on Monday morning where they burnt down two trucks loaded with oranges and a Toyota hilux vehicles, after abducting the drivers to an unknown destination.

Our Correspondent gathered that the incident took place few kilometres away from limanti/ Bullabulin Ngarwa communities where series of deadly road attacks masterminded by Boko Haram sects took place in recent times.

Speaking to our Correspondent, a motorist/driver who escaped the attack, Mallam Musa Usman told our Correspondent in an interview that the incident occurred at about 9am on Monday, when some group of terrorists suspected to be Boko Haram in the process of crossing over the highway from their camps in Sambisa Game Forests met with some motorists on the road, barricading them, set all the three vehicles including a truck loaded with orange from Benue state ablaze.
