Gunmen bomb more Telecomms Mast, Kill 16 in Yobe

Hmmmmm........ and the madness continues.

Barely 24 hours after torching 15 masts of four Global System of Mobile Communication (GSM) firms in Borno state violence however, spread to neighbouring Yobe state, setting ablaze the service-base masts of Airtel, Glo and Etisalat in Potiskum and Damaturu, with Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and petrol-bombs in the early hours of Thursday.
Besides the torching of GSM masts, the gunmen, suspected to be members of the Boko Haram sect, killed 16 people, including the Yobe state government protocol officer, Mallam Adamu, while returning from his duty post at the Government House, Damaturu.
