Nigeria: Military repels Boko Haram attack on Gombe
The military Saturday repelled an attack on Gombe by Boko Haram who, as they retreated, warned residents not to participate in the country’s elections in March.
Scores of the rebels assaulted Gombe in the morning and engaged in heavy fighting with the army. Two air force jets also attacked the rebels.
The Boko Haram fighters left in a convoy of vehicles carrying dozens of corpses, according to residents.
