Boko Haram Captures Askira Town In Borno State by Nobody: 12:40pm On Jan 14, 2015
The Boko Haram sect has attacked another town, Askira in Borno State, some fleeing residents of the town told journalists in Maiduguri on Tuesday.

According to one of the residents of the town, Yusuf Mohammed, who fled to Maiduguri, the insurgents attacked the town in a convoy of Toyota Hilux vehicles and motorcycles at about 3.35 pm on Monday.

He said the terrorists, who were armed with Improvised Explosive Devices and petrol-bombs, torched several public buildings, including a secondary school, the Divisional Police Station and telecom masts.

Mohammed, who arrived Maiduguri on Tuesday morning in a pickup van with some other passengers, said, “As we were about to depart the motor park yesterday (Monday) afternoon, we saw some insurgents chanting Allahu Akbar (God is great) in Arabic.

“They burnt down a school in the town. They did not stop there they proceeded to the police station and a health centre and threw IEDs at the buildings.”

The residents of the town who, he said, were shocked, fled into the bush and nearby communities.

Inuwa said their vehicles were mounted with Rapid Propelled Grenades and they shot sporadically and chanted Allahu Akbar (God is great, in Arabic).

He narrated that he had to flee along with six passengers in the taxi to Maiduguri through Mbalala-Chibok Road.

On casualties, he said, “I cannot give you the number of casualities but we saw some bodies on the road, while we were fleeing towards Mbalala.”

Askira is a predominantly farming community bordering Adamawa State, and 252 kilometres south of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, the birthplace of the Boko Haram insurgency.

A police source told our correspondent that there was a report of insurgents’ attacks on one of the towns in Southern Borno Senatorial District.

He said, “I cannot give you the casualty figure, but some public buildings were

burnt, including our station in Askira town, 60 kilometres west of Uba near Mubi town in Adamawa State.”

Some times I wonder how some ppl reason. How can u say dis and claim to have brain. Buhari that vividly put it to u dat if he dose not win there will be a blood bath b/w the baboon and the dog this 2015. And all u can do is chastise ur president. Look am not saying Nigeria dose not need change but certainly not buhari. He should know better than to use duress in the 21century. Let us show this blood sucking fulani president want to be that united will stand.
