Nigeria: Boko Haram terrorists launch fresh attack on Maiduguri, army has repelled them
Boko Haram terrorists have launched a fresh attack on Maiduguri, Borno State following a weekend onslaught which was repelled by troops.
The insurgents were said to have arrived in the Moronti area of the city by river early on Tuesday, June 2, 2015, but were unable to gain entry due to ditches created by soldiers around the area.
They then proceeded to attack Ajillari Cross, which is about three kilometres away, according to AFP.
“We were bombarded by RPGs (rocket-propelled grenades) by Boko Haram from Moronti. We all left our homes for fear of being hit inside,” Isa Mala, who lives in Ajillari Cross, said.
