Boko Haram have reportedly bombed the sole bridge linking Borno State, Nigeria & Cameroun. The small bridge which is located at the border town of Gamboru Ngala, was bombed today, cutting off some residents of the area from their families who live in Cameroon.

At least 30 people were killed this evening following the attack, with many reportedly still trapped under the ruble.

Residents say the only option left for people traveling to and from Gamboru, is to go into Banki near Bama local government area of Borno into Cameroon and later enter Gamboru from another Cameroonian village.

This is the same area where over 300 people were killed by Boko Haram on Monday.
