Residential houses, shops and other properties worth millions of naira were also destroyed by the insurgents who looted foodstuffs and livestock without confrontation.

Boko Haram and its offshoot, Islamic State West Africa Province, have become more ferocious in recent times.

The Nigerian Army has repeatedly claimed that the insurgency has been largely defeated.

The terror group has caused over 40,000 deaths and displaced millions of individuals mainly in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states.
