Major General Benson Akinroluye, the Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, has confirmed the multiple attacks on Auno and Sajeri communities in Borno State.
However, he said he was yet to get the actual number of the casualties.
Major General Akinroluye confirmed the incident to journalists in his office, Maimalari Containment.
He said: “We have received a distress call on the Boko Haram attacks in Auno and other surrounding communities of Maiduguri Metropolis.
”I am on my way to the affected communities to ensure we provide adequate security of lives and property.
“Although, I am yet to be briefed by my officers and men who repelled the attacks, I want to reassure all the good people of the state that the military and other security agencies are on top of the renewed security situation in the state.”
Sajeri is an outskirt and few metres away from Ajilari community of the City.
Residents of Auno, a village about 10 km from Maiduguri, the Borno State capital allegedly fled the community on Monday evening when suspected Boko Haram militants stormed the village.
The insurgents were later repelled by the military forces and members of the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF).
