Residents of Maiduguri, the Borno state capital, fled their homes in hundreds after members of Boko Haram terrorist group attacked the city.
Boko Haram last night launched an attack in Juddumri, a community in the state capital.
According to reports, the attack happened at about 8pm when the residents in the community were concluding their Islamic prayers in the mosques.
Hamed Ibrahim, a 21-year-old man spoke on the attack, he said;
“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.”
