Suspected Boko Haram Terrorists Attack Town In Borno

Boko Haram Suspected Boko Haram terrorists have attacked Aduwari, a satellite village near Polo area in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State.
They reportedly came in three vehicles shelling and shooting at villagers until Sunday evening.
The assailants, who set parts of the village ablaze, also began shooting into Polo area leaving many residents injured.

Residents of Jiddari Polo area are in panic with many fleeing their homes to safer parts of the capital city.
Military authorities in charge of the ‘Operation Lafiya Dole’ are yet to react on the latest attack.
The Army had placed a ban on vehicular movement within the metropolis since Thursday evening until Sunday morning to avert possible attacks during Christmas celebrations.
Counter terrorism operations have continued in the north-east to contain the activities of the terrorist group in line with a directive from President Muhammadu Buhari to the military to end the terrorists’ activities before the end of the year.
Earlier on Sunday, Nigerian Army troops in Kaduna State foiled another insurgent attack, with the arrest of seven suspected Boko Haram members and specialists in bombs and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).
A statement by the Army spokesperson, Colonel Sani Kukasheka, said from all indications, the suspects were in Kaduna to coordinate suicide bombings during the festive period.
Col. Kukasheka added that recently in Maiduguri, some of the terror specialists were arrested while trying to detonate IEDs carried in food containers in public places.
On Wednesday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Mr Lai Mohammed, told reporter in Lagos that the military “has so degraded the capability of Boko Haram and that the terrorist can no longer carry out any spectacular attacks”.
Fading Insurgency
The Minister further said that “the military has largely met the deadline and are now involved in mop-up and humanitarian operations”.
He, however, stressed that attacks on soft targets would not end with the deadline, but it will taper-off gradually.
Mr Mohammed told reporters that the gradual end to the attacks was in line with the nature of insurgency worldwide.
