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.”

  3. All this book haram my prayer to you all that one day a time will come when you will turn again each other and kill your selves ,just very soon

  4. We really need God’s intervention in this state and the federal government has a big work in its hand to arrest Boko haram and its activities.

  5. A place like this deserves operation Python dance. I wonder what federal government is doing. Buhari promised to completely stop bokoharam,why are we still hearing it?
