 Gwoza residents panic as military fires artillery at ISWAP fighters in Biu - Borno BORNO-STATE-MAP21093

Residents of Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State were on Thursday night sent into panic following the sustained firing of the 40-barrel artillery gun in town.

Press learnt that aid workers and other civilians in the area were however calmed down as the firing was to send signals to suspected fighters of the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) said to be gathering at a location around the town.

It could be recalled that earlier this week, ISWAP suffered heavy casualties when they attempted to ambush the military on patrol along the axis of the Ex-Boko Haram caliphate.

A top security official, who left Gwoza town on Friday morning, confirmed that there was no issue in Gwoza when he started out to Maiduguri. As stated by him, Gwoza is safe.

Asked about the rumour of attack on the Police Training School in Limankara, the officer, who did not wish to be named, said he was not aware of such incident as Limankara is on the outskirts of Gwoza town.

“You may wish to check with the police but as far as I am concerned if there is such information I am supposed to know before living Gwoza this morning. But I am not saying it is possible as everything is possible with the current situation in the northeast,” he said.
