Nigeria Army On The Run, Hundreds Of Residents Flee The North, As Boko Haram Strikes Again, Fires Deadly Gun Shots

Hundreds of civilians have fled Gulak town, the Headquarters of Madagali Local Area, as Boko Haram made a bold attempt to take over the town, on Monday night.

It was learnt that a large number of armed militants attacked the town and engaged the Military in a battle.

A fleeing resident who spoke on phone, said he believed the insurgents had displaced the Military and Police from the town.

“Boko Haram has taken over the town, and thousands of us are here in the bush, We do not know what will happen to us. Can’t you hear gunshots?”

Major Badare Akintoye, the Spokesperson of the 28 Task Force Brigade, in Mubi, did not answer calls from Daily Trust Reporter.

However, a Military source who did not want his name published, confirmed the attack, saying a reinforcement was sent to the town.
