Nigeria: 55 killed in Boko Haram attacks, 105 prisoners freed

Nigeria’s Boko Haram gunmen Tuesday launched coordinated attacks on military barracks, a prison and police stations in the northeastern town of Bama, killing 55 people and setting free 105 inmates, the army said.

“In these attacks, 55 people including two soldiers, some prison warders, policemen and civilians were killed,” said Musa Sagir, the military spokesman in Maiduguri, 67 kilometres from Bama.

“Heavily armed Boko Haram terrorists” launched the attacks around 5:00 am (0400 GMT), said Musa Sagir, the military spokesman in nearby Maiduguri, the Islamist group’s cradle and stronghold.

“Some of the gunmen attacked the military barracks but they were repelled. Ten of them were killed and two were arrested,” he said.
