    Boko Haram terrorists have staged a fresh attack on a military base in Baga in the Kukawa Local Government Area of Borno State, a day after they invaded Gudumbali area in the Guzamala Local Government Area and sacked the residents.
    The Nigerian Army on Sunday confirmed the terror attack on Gudumbali, saying that its combined troops of 82 Division Task Force Brigade and 158 Task Force Battalion repelled the attack and were restoring normalcy in the area .
    The Director, Army Public Relations , Brig Gen Texas Chukwu , said the terrorists “set some buildings ablaze in the community but no casualty was recorded. ”
    Our correspondent reported on Sunday that the Boko Haram insurgents on Saturday overran the troops’ location in Gudumbali and displaced the residents to Gubio town .
    Eyewitnesses said the terrorists captured the community after trooping into the areas in large numbers and shooting sporadically which sent thousands of residents fleeing.
    Our correspondent learnt that after attacking Gudumbali , the terrorists proceeded to Baga in the Kukawa LGA and staged another attack on the army formation , with the number of casualties on both sides yet to be ascertained as of press time.
    Ahmad Salkida , an independent investigator familiar with the Lake Chad and Boko Haram crisis , said on Twitter that the terrorists seemed to have a hidden agenda by the frequent attacks on military bases.
    He said, “When attention was on the attack on Guzamala on Saturday, the group staged another daring attempt on another military facility in Baga, Kukawa , on the shores of the Lake Chad. I am not here to argue about casualties. I am concerned with the implications of these growing

    Over seven months after the abduction of her daughter, Leah, by the Boko Haram sect , Mrs Rebecca Sharibu on Friday in Jos continued to share her agony with a plea to President Muhammadu Buhari to take action and rescue her daughter.
    Her saddest moment, she said, was when after expressing joy and happiness that her daughter had been freed , she woke up to know that she was only dreaming.
    She added that the family had not remained the same since the unfortunate incident.
    Leah Sharibu was one of the 110 female students of the Government Girls’ Science and Technical College , Dapchi, Yobe State, who were abducted on February 19 , 2018 , by Boko Haram terrorists . While others were released by the terrorists following negotiations , Leah is still being held captive because she refused to renounce her Christian faith.
    Rebecca Sharibu spoke in an interview with THE PUNCH at the headquarters of the Church of Christ in Nations in Jos during the second anniversary of the Arewa Christians and Indigenous Pastors Association .
    At the ceremony, notable personalities and institutions including PUNCH Newspapers and the family of Leah Sharibu were given awards.
    PUNCH was given the merit award of excellence by ACIPA “ for promoting unity as a Media House. ”
    In an interview with our correspondent on the sidelines of the event , Mrs Sharibu said, “I am Rebecca Sharibu, mother of Leah Sharibu. I have only two children, Leah Sharibu and Donald Sharibu who is in SS 1 . My husband works in Yola as a civil servant but I am a primary schoolteacher in Dapchi . The absence of Leah has affected my life because we have always been feeling very bad.
    “We have been feeling very bad and our lives have not been the same because of the absence of my daughter. My plea to President Muhammadu Buhari is that he should take action to bring back my daughter, Leah .
    “My daughter has been taken and held captive since February 19 , 2018 . I have faced trauma since. But I had a dream last month (August ) that my daughter was freed and she returned home. I was very happy and overjoyed that Leah came back , but only to wake up and realised that it was all a dream .
    “That was my worst and saddest moment; I felt very bad and started crying again because it was a dream and not reality. I believe that one day and by God’ s grace , Leah will be back . ”
    The woman also confirmed that the voice of the girl in the audiotape released recently by the Boko Haram sect was her daughter’s .
    She said, “Yes , I can confirm that the audio voice that was released last time was the voice of my daughter, Leah Sharibu. We were at home and she was in school with her colleagues . We did not know what happened but only heard that Boko Haram members arrived at our place and abducted them.
    “We went to the school the next day and saw nobody . The report we got was that their captors took away 110 students, including my daughter, Leah Sharibu. ”
    The National President of ACIPA, Luke Shehu , said while former President Goodluck Jonathan was complacent in stopping the insurgency , there was a proliferation of light and small arms, the emergence of Fulani militia , impunity and genocide under Buhari .
    Shehu said, “The constant weekly , if not daily killings by Boko Haram or Fulani herdsmen can no longer be tolerated . With a nostalgic sad memory , we will recall the September 2 , 2018 killing of 14 innocent people again in Barkin -Ladi. We are aware of their grand plan of subtle and ferocious plan to take over indigenous lands .
    “The Fulani militia attack at will and random, we are aware of the flagrant provocating and inciting words of Fulani leaders without
