Boko Haram, the newly designated violent Islamic terrorist by the USA, in the early hour on Monday, around 3am attacked the Maiduguri International Airport and the Composite Group Air Force Base in Maiduguri,and killed about 20 military men.
The group also attacked a newly constructed trailer park and residential buildings in the Borno State capital.
The militants were said to have planted and detonated multiple Improvised Explosive Devices around the targets.
The sect members were said to have attacked the residential areas not far from the Air Force Base, which forced the military men to come out of the cantonment, giving another group of the suspected terrorists the opportunity to attack the base and other vulnerable targets.
The insurgents were said to have planted IEDs at strategic parts of the airport, which they exploded in the facility said to have been under heavy security protection. (Punch Newspaper)
