Boko Haram insurgents Saturday, strapped two Fulani boys, Gambo Bukar and Umar Bukar, aged 10 and 8yrs respectively, of Dalti village in Jere LGA, outskirts of Maiduguri who went out for grazing at Baram and Tamsongamdu villages in Mafa LGA with bomb.

According to a statement signed by PPRO Borno DSP Victor Isuku , the boys came in contact with Boko Haram terrorists elements.  Gambo Bukar was strapped with IED vest and set free.
They returned home at about 4pm of the same day and failed to disclose their encounter with the terrorists.
