Boko Haram Invades Another Village After Capturing Baga

‭Boko Haram has invaded some communities in Monguno Local Government Area of Borno state.

A resident revealed that Boko Haram fighters stormed Kekeno, one of the affected villages around 6pm and engaged soldiers on ground in a gun battle.

“The terrorists came well prepared. They had different anti-aircraft guns and mounted it in different locations,” he said.

Malam Arramma, a resident, said the villagers took to their heels when they heard gunshots. 

“More than 4000 IDPs who ran from the Boko Haram onslaught in Baga have been trapped. These IDPs who are mainly children and women are currently running for their lives. Many of them are in the bush as we speak,” he said.

“They have been in Monguno since last week, I joined some of the people who tried to rescue them but as I am talking to you, we are all in the bush.”

Earlier on Friday, a resident of Baga, still in Borno, disclosed that the sect hoisted its flag in the community after overrunning a military base in Baga.
