Suspected Boko Haram insurgents have attacked motorists near Lantaiwa, a community located 70 kilometers north from Damaturu, the Yobe State capital.
The community is also 30 kilometers to Dapchi, where 110 schoolgirls were kidnapped in 2018.
Lieutenant Chinonso Oteh, the Acting Assistant Director, Army Public Relations, Sector 2 Operation Lafiya Dole, disclosed on Friday, that officers were mobilized to the area.
However, he could not confirm if passengers were abducted.
The terrorists had last Sunday, destroyed two telecommunication masts in Babbangida, headquarters of Tarmuwa Local Government Council of the state, in order to stop the locals from sharing information with security personnel.
