Three people, among them a student of the Federal College of Education (Technical) Gombe, were feared killed early Friday morning when soldiers raided a suspected terrorists base in Gombe, the Gombe State capital. Four other people were also seriously injured
Narrating the incident to reporters, a student of FCE and a survivor of the raid, Abubakar Adamu, stated that the soldiers came to their house around 3:30 am in London-Maidoruwa, a suburb of Gombe town which is directly behind FCE and started pulling down the mud house they were staying in with their amoured vehicle.
He said a gun battle then ensued which terrified them and forced them out of the house through the window during which three people, including a prelim student of FCE, Aliyu Jibrin, was killed. Adamu, however, said he could not identify the other two dead bodies.
