It was gathered that the insurgents stormed the community on Friday evening, shooting randomly, destroying houses and other property, and carting away with belongings of residents.
Speaking with Daily Post on Saturday morning, a source around the area, Innocent Geoffrey said that the attackers were first thought to be herders out for vengeance attack.
“But they later manifested their Boko Haram tendency, seizing the female residents they could lay their hands on, as residents scampered for safety.
“Right now ,there is no single person in Kwapri, everybody has fled the community,” Innocent said.
The Member representing Gombi/ Hong Federal Constituency and Chairman, Committee on Foreign Affairs of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon Yusuf Buba Yakubu who repesents the affected community in the National Assembly, reacted to the development with a statement expressing his concerns.
He said the insurgents who besieged Kwapre village in Garaha Ward of Hong LGA, killed and maimed unsuspecting community dwellers, destroyed homes and property and abducted some people.
“This latest attack on the innocent and peace- loving people of Kwapre is another senseless and cruel act of cowardice on a community that is renowned for peace, industry and serenity,” the lawmaker said.
This comes a week after eight Boko Haram terrorist were killed, while soldiers and policemen sustained injuries during an ambush in Borno State.
