Buhari’s village was reportedly a victim to a Military Jet, which released detonated bombs that left dozens dead.

Anti civilian attack happened in the early hours of the 15th September, 2021.

A villager who spoke with the BBC revealed how three Fighter Jets circled round, just before the bomb was dropped on the civilians by one of them.

He said five of his relatives have lost their lives in the terrible incident.

You will recall that a similar disaster rocked in same place in the year 2017. This was when the Nigeria Air Force accidentally bombed an IDP Camp in Rann, Borno.

The military is yet to release a statement to the effect of the incident but a journalist, Bulama Bukarti reacted to the news by saying, “BBC Hausa reports that many civilians were killed and others injured earlier today when a jet believed to be from the Nigerian Air Force bombed Buhari village, Yunusari LGA, Yobe State.” 

“Three jets went around, then one of them started firing in the center of the village,” said a witness who lost five relatives.
 
“Because this area is in the northern part of Yobe, close to the BH/ISWAP area of operation, the jets could have been on an anti-BH mission.” 

Villagers are unsure whether the jets belong to Nigeria or Niger, but it’s unlikely to be Niger’s because it’s on Nigerian soil.”
