JUST IN: Borno on fire as Boko Haram ambushed, kill many people

Suspected members of dreaded Boko Haram
sect have after laid ambush on motorists along
Maiduguri- Damaturu-Kano road infiltrated
Auno village of Konduga Local Government Area
of Borno state, leaving some people dead and
Unconfirmed report has revealed.

Sources said, the insurgents who stormed
Auno at about 7:15pm on Wednesday
attempted to wreck havoc before security
operatives attached to Military Command
School newly constructed by the state
government engaged them in a gun battle.
Auno is one of the villages that benefitted
hugely in the ongoing reconstruct, rehabilitation
and resettlement initiatives of governor Kashim
Shettima, as virtually all schools, health clinics,
mosque and residential houses hitherto
destroyed by insurgents have been put to new
shape under the present administration which
is located west and about 20 kilometers drive
from Maiduguri, the state capital.
Sources said, “As at press time, hundreds of
residents were scampering for safety due to the
heavy gunshots and explosions being witnessed
around the area.
“Some motorists were forced to make a u-turn
to back to Damaturu or Maiduguri, as Auno is
located along the major Maiduguri-Kano
highway following the incident.
No official statement from either the military
nor the police at the time of filing in this
report. Details later.
