The dreaded Boko Haram sect has now turned their attention to Bajoga town in Gombe, as the news reaching us has it that the town came into attacks by the sect in the early hours of today.
Reports say that the militant came in numbers shooting and breaking people’s homes, shooting at them and blowing things up.
We do recall that Boko haram sects visited the community some weeks back and carted away with dynamites and other explosives.
Bajoga is the host community for the Ashaka cement factory.

A PREMIUM TIMES reporter could hear sounds of gunshots and explosion as he interviewed a resident of the town, who telephoned to inform this newspaper of the development.
“Sound of explosion and gunshots woke us up from sleep and we had to hurriedly leave to the outskirts of town where I am calling you from,” said our source, who gave his name as Mr. Sunday.
Bajoga hosts the Ashaka cement plant, and the Boko Haram sect carried out a similar raid on the plant last month during which they reportedly carted away four Toyota Hilux vans packed with explosives.
The spokesperson of the Gombe State Command of the Nigerian Police could not be reached for comments at this time.
