He said: "Boko Haram insurgents came in large numbers in trucks and on motorcycles and attacked Goram and two neighbouring villages, Lingis and Ajidari."
"They killed three people and burned around 150 homes. They looted foodstores and set them on fire."
However it was not immediately clear as to which faction of Boko Haram was responsible for the attack.
Meanwhile on Wednesday, two people were also killed when a convoy of vehicles hit landmines on the road from the Borno state capital to Dikwa.
According to an earlier report by Legit.ng, Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno state on Wednesday, September 27, in Maiduguri pledged that his successor will not inherit the Boko Haram crisis.
Governor Shettima said he was unlucky that he inherited the twin problems in 2011 and he wished that the problems would have been eradicated by the time he was through with his tenure.
