BREAKING: Terrorists Take Over Highway, Burn Trucks, Others

Information reaching Ibom Focus says that Boko Haram Terrorists Take Over Highway, Burn 3 Trucks, Others

Boko Haram terrorists on Monday took over the popular Damaturu-Maiduguri Road in Borno State, setting ablaze three trucks.

The incident happened along Mainok -Jakana axis of the highway around 9am.

The insurgents, who reportedly appeared in military uniforms, were said to have mounted a roadblock around Lawan Mainari village, roughly 50 kilometers away from Maiduguri.

“They set ablaze an unspecified number of vehicles after the commuters abandoned their cars and ran away,” a villager said.

In May, the insurgents opened fire on the convoy carrying policemen attached to a yet-to-be-identified presidential aspirant of the ruling All Progressives Congress.
