Despite being considerably weakened, Boko Haram comes again for the city they have never been able to take over.
According to reports, the sect members entered the town through an area known as “Cashew Plantain” which is behind Gina Barracks, housing the 7th Division of the Army. Residents say were taken unawares as the sect members stormed their community, shooting sporadically and causing everyone to run for safety. Nigerian troops are reportedly engaging the sect members in a serious gun battle.
However, at 6.30 PM, Defence HQ reported that Nigerian troops successfully repelled the attack on Maiduguri through Kayamla.
