The gunmen, five of whom were also killed, razed a police station and a military camp during the late Sunday attack in the restive region, which has been among the hardest hit areas during Boko Haram’s five-year uprising. “The gunmen split into three groups and launched simultaneous attacks on the military camp, the police station and other buildings in the village,” said Abor Grema, a resident of the targeted Krenuwa village in Marte district. Marte was one of the areas in Borno state where Boko Haram chased out the government last year, forcing President Goodluck Jonathan to declare a state of emergency in the region while launching a military offensive to crush the uprising.
