Suspected Boko Haram terrorists lunched an attack on Maiduguri, the Borno State capital yesterday, February 23.
The attack left no fewer than 13 persons dead, while over 40 others sustained varying degrees of injuries.
However, a team of security, military, Civilian JTF and humanitarian workers were still combing the town for corpses even as the injured were assisted to the hospital.
At a football pitch in Gwange near the House of late Gen Mamman Shuwa, nine boys who were playing football early evening were killed by the shot rockets lunched by the insurgents.
Many others were injured at the football pitch by the rockets, which many said were 10 in number fired simultaneously.
Many people were seen fleeing into other parts of the town with fear that it may be a prelude to further attacks.
One of the residents said:
“this is strange, in all the years of the attack on Maiduguri, we have not seen such massive rocket landing on us.
“We just need to flee into town for it is getting dark and we do not know what lies ahead.”
The military had to push the insurgents who were stationed around the town away with air bombardment to stop the town from getting infiltrated by the insurgents.
In another development, New Marte in Borno State which was taken over by Boko Haram terrorists, has been recovered by troops as confirmed by the Nigerian Army.
This was Confirmed in a statement released by the Nigerian army on Tuesday, February 23.
