Yesterday, a military base and some IDP camps in Rann, Borno state were attacked by Boko Haram members.
According to reports, the group members who came in with refined weapons, began the attack at about 5:20 pm.
A military source said;
“The terrorists took over a military position in Rann following heavy fighting,” he said on condition of anonymity. Poor visibility because of seasonal Harmattan winds hampered the deployment of air force jets, and troops were forced to withdraw. The terrorists went about setting fire to camps and shelters of IDPs. Most people have fled the town into the bush but we have no details of casualties at the moment.”
