After the last time attack in February when they kidnapped three Customs officers, the insurgents once again attacked Geidam town, the country home of Acting Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba Alkali.
The attackers are currently at the heart of the town, burning shops and shooting sporadically in a gun battle with troops.
Details of the attack are sketchy but all residents we learnt have run away for safety.
Yobe Police Public Relation Officer, ASP Dungus Abdulkarim, confirmed the attack.
He said an Air Force jet has already been deployed to Giedam hovering in the sky.
ASP Abdulkariim also informed the attackers are inside the town, causing destruction.
He promised to give details of the attack, which according to him are still sketchy.
