Kastina have been on the siege in recent weeks as many cases of banditry and kidnapping have been recorded in the state.

Recall that Boko Haram insurgents last Friday attacked travelers along the Damaturu-Maiduguri road, abducting at least 35 commuters.

The insurgents, who reportedly appeared in military uniforms, attacked a large convoy of commuters near Garin Kuturu in Jakana at about 5 pm on Friday.

Military sources said that Boko Haram members were said to have mounted a roadblock on the highway with five Hilux vans before taking away the passengers.

“The passengers first sighted a burning fire, but they thought it was bush burning, not knowing that they had already ambushed a Dangote’s truck driver and set it ablaze,” a source said
