Boko Haram in Gombe

No less than 11 people have been killed after Boko Haram attacked the outskirts of Maiduguri in Borno State on Saturday morning, Reuters reports.

The attack comes barely 24 hours after President Muhammadu Buhari‘s inauguration. You will recall that while speaking at the inauguration, Buhari promised to crush Boko Haram, and mentioned that one strategy to be employed to accomplish this goal is the movement of the command center for military operations away from Abuja to Maiduguri.

Gunshots from high-caliber weapons were reportedly heard between about 1 a.m and 2:20 a.m around Damboa road near  Mule, a small settlement about 10 km (6 miles) from Maiduguri.

A military source said, “a rocket launcher from Boko Haram hit a house around the Bulumkutu area…and killed five people. Our boys also picked up six corpses in different locations.”

    May God give Buhari the wisdom and ability to defeat Boko Haram. It is really sad that innocent people are dying.
