Curfew imposed on Maiduguri after Boko Haram attacks

A curfew has been placed on Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, till further notice after members of the dreaded Boko Haram sect attacked two towns on Sunday morning.

Troops of the Nigerian Army had repelled attacks by the insurgents as they simultaneously launched attacks on Monguno and Maiduguri.

The military launched coordinated air and land strikes on the insurgents and are in pursuit of the retreating Boko Haram members.

An eye witness report who spoke to Channels Television in a phone call interview said the incident started at about 11PM adding that residents fled their homes to avoid running into the cross fire.

However, the Nigerian Military and Nigerian Airforce moved into the area called “Sector Six” Jimtilo Village about five kilometres to Maiduguri to combat the retreating sect members.
