Boko Haram insurgents have ambushed and abducted over 15 travellers along the Maiduguri-Damaturu Highway.
The terrorists who stormed the highway waylaid a Toyota Hiace Mass Transit bus around 2 pm on Monday and took all passengers from the vehicle.
A source told SaharaReporters that the Boko Haram members were all armed, with some were dressed in military uniforms.
It was gathered that the spot where the insurgents attacked was not far from a military checkpoint.
A military officer who pleaded anonymity stated that the barracks was attacked at about 11:20 pm on Monday, July 13, 2020.
According to the source in a conversation with newsmen, the insurgent stormed the barracks shooting sporadically, though the soldiers retaliated but the insurgents had already surrounded the barracks, the military personnel noted.
Naija News understands that the barracks which was attacked was just a few meters away from the Nigerian Air Force base in the state.
