Boko Haram Militants Attacking Maiduguri Since Last Night- Sahara Reporters

Nigerian northeastern based Boko Haram insurgents began coordinated massive attacks on Maiduguri and Monguno townships since 8PM Nigerian time after massing around villages in the area for several days , according to several sources.

Security sources told SaharaReporters that the militant Islamist group began the onslaught on Maiduguri coming from different directions with its largest contingent coming through Damaturu road. The insurgents have not had much success because Nigeria troops have been fighting back and successfully repelling the terrorists.

The daring attack by the militants is coming a few hours after President Goodluck Jonathan ended a presidential campaign rally in Maiduguri promising to find high school girls kidnapped by the deadly sect last April and re-unite them with their families.
