He said: “It happened in Buhari village in Yunusari Local Government very close to Gaidam and Boko Haram members are using that community as a hideout to attack Gaidam and Yunusary.
“The community has a thick vegetation cover which gives Boko Haram a good place for them to camp. They have converted the village to one of their camps.
