The incident happened at about 10 am on Saturday which disrupted the exercise, as voters scampered for safety.

Sources said, some people sustained injuries, but no life was lost.

Sources said, the terrorists fired the RPG in a far distance from the Mandara Mountains bordering Gwoza and Cameroun Republic.

Gwoza, about 150km from Maiduguri south, is a hometown of Senator Mohammed Ali Ndume who is re-contesting on the platform of the APC.

All efforts to get confirmation from Ndume who is the Chairman senate committee on Army did not yield positive results, as his phone line was switched off at press time.
