Boko Haram fighters have sneaked into Geidam, a town in Yobe state and killed 10 hotel guests.

They also burnt down Government Science and Technical School, in the town.

They killed a person in the living quarters of the school.

The militants similarly attacked the town on 25 April last year.

The insurgents entered through the eastern part of the town, after parking their motorbikes in a neighbouring community.

According to a report by Daily Trust, the gunmen stormed ‘Kwari’, a popular brothel in Geidam, where they slaughtered 10 people, both men and women.

“They took us by surprise this time around; they entered in silence without firing shots or using vehicles.”

“Upon their entrance, they asked some of the residents to recite verses of the Qur’an before they either allowed them leave or get killed.”

Some residents are reportedly fleeing the town to avoid being trapped, as was the case last year when the insurgents spent days in the community.
