Many resident of Maiduguri, the Borno state capital, have fled their homes after members of the terrorist group, Boko Haram, launched an attack in Juddumri, a community in the state capital last night.
According to reports, the attack happened at about 8pm when the residents in the community were concluding their Islamic prayers in the mosques.
“It started when we began to hear heavy sounds of shooting coming from the bush area behind our community which is not far away from the Federal High Court. Initially we thought of running into our houses but soldiers guarding the parapets asked everyone to leave at once. That was why we had to leave en masse.”hmed Ibrahim, a 21-year-old man said
The Federal government on many occasions, have said the terrorist group has been degraded technically.
