Boko Haram fighters launched an attack on northeast Nigeria’s largest city Maiduguri on Wednesday ‎but were repelled by Nigerian troops after intense clashes, residents and the army said.

Dozens of militants armed with heavy guns and rocket-propelled grenades stormed the northern outskirts of the city near Giwa military base, shooting and firing explosives indiscriminately, local witnesses told AFP.

The army said in a statement its soldiers had fought off “a band of terrorists” and that two bombs carried by female suicide bombers were detonated ahead of the attack.
