However, in Gidangoga village, where three individuals lost their lives, the villagers retaliated, resulting in the killing of 24 terrorists from whom they also recovered eight motorbikes.

Residents of Maradun are decrying the frequency of the attacks, PR Nigeria, an online platform said.

“The attacks are becoming consistent in Maradun area these days. They happen almost every day. Many communities in the local government have been vacated for fear of reprisal,” one villager said.

In Bilbis village of Tsafe Local Government Area, about 20 people were killed after the terrorists ruthlessly attacked farmers while they were working on their farmlands.
