Suspected armed members of the most dreaded terrorist group in Nigeria, Boko Haram, have regained a community in Borno.
They reportedly invaded a Military Formation on Sunday at the outskirts of Magumeri Local Government Area of Borno State and sacked all the inhabitants in the base.
Due to lack of telecommunications networks, information on the attacks was delayed, Vanguard reports.
Sources claimed that both Boko Haram and some security operatives suffered quite a number of casualties in the clash, as residents of Magumeri fled into the bush for safety.
Already, some residents have started returning back from the bush after 48hours as security situation normalizes.
Magumeri Local Government Area of Borno State which is located north and about 35 kilometres away from Maiduguri, the state capital had witnessed series of Boko Haram attacks and killings in recent past.
A local who is a resident of the town living near the market and close to the District Head Palace, Abur Zanna said, “the Boko Haram terrorists entered the town at exactly 5:40 pm in a large convoy of trucks and motorcycles shouting slogans like, “Allahu Akbar” meaning, God is Great, moving round the town scaring the residents and making some residents to flee into bushes to hide for safety as there are no villages close by”.
