Hundreds of civilians are fleeing their homes, as suspected boko haram terrorists are currently attacking near Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, according to residents.
One resident said that the terrorists came in large numbers to Molai General Area, on the outskirt of Maiduguri.
According to a resident, Ali Umaru, Molai General Area came under attack shortly after Muslim faithfuls broke their fast.
Ali told Sahara Reporters on the phone: “We are under serious gunfire from every angle. I cannot speak now, boko haram are currently in Molai, and everyone is running.”
A Security source however, confirmed that fighter jets are underway.
