“They came in through Forfor, and our people are running for safety as we speak.” a resident said.

Meanwhile, kanyiDaily had reported that women and children numbering over 1000 abandoned their homes in remote communities in Borno State for the streets of Maiduguri, after the recent Boko Haram attacks.
