The assailants reportedly invaded the community around 2:00 am on Friday, killing the pastor, church treasurer Maina Abdullahi, and additional victims in their homes.
Houses, a church, and vehicles were set ablaze before security forces arrived. Both the military and the Nigerian Police Force are yet to comment on the incident.
Geidam is located near the Nigeria/Niger Republic border, and this incident follows a recent Boko Haram attack in a neighboring Yobe State community, where 12 people were killed. The insurgency has caused significant casualties and displacement since its inception in 2009.
