THE Boko Haram terrorists attacked the northern Nigerian town of Buni Yadi in Yobe State late on Thursday July 9, 2015 and it was unclear how the fighting had ended, military sources have said.

There was no information on any casualties after the attack that started at around 9 p.m, the sources said on Friday July 10, 2015 morning.

A Reuters correspondent saw a detachment of troops with armoured personnel carriers and a fighter jet heading towards Buni Yadi on Friday morning.

“Those boys (Boko Haram) came to Buni Yadi yesterday (Thursday) and attacked our people. They came in about nine Hilux (pick-up trucks) and opened fire… Our people have mobilised for reinforcement,” one the sources said.

Buni Yadi was one of the towns that was captured by the insurgent group in 2014 and then reclaimed in March this year by Nigerian Army.
