BokoHaram /ISWAP attacked Tarmuwa local Government of Yobe State on 27th November 2019, some weeks after they attacked the house of his Royal highness the Emir of Jajere, a first class Emir in the Local Government, VAM News reports.



The security fired for about 1 hour on air leaving the natives in fear, according to our source, they wear Nigerian army uniform and Hilux, but mostly old with patches on the uniform. 


The incident happened and the natives know nothing of whereabouts of the Nigerian army that are stationed in Tarmuwa, until more troops and NAF came to their rescue. 


While trying to save the town, NAF mistakenly fired some innocent houses which led to the death of a Primary 4 pupil and injured more.. 



On 28th of the November,  Yobe State Emergency Management Agency visited the victims and delivered food stuffs, and other relief materials. 


Even though the victims are happy with SEMA's intervention, they still cried for not having a place to sleep nor cloths to wear as they only own the cloths they wear before the attack. 


The Victims also thanked the Nigerian army and NAF and urged them to work effectively for saving humanity. A retired civil servant whose name is hidden asked the NAF to always focus on their targets and be alerted whenever issues like this came up. 


A law student, Mr Bala, whoes neighbor house was burnt loud the state Government for immediate intervention and for the relief materials shared. He also urged the SEMA to make sure those houses burnt are rebuild.
