THE military and Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) have repelled an attack by suspected Boko Haram militants in northeastern Nigeria. The attack in Mainok town, about 60 km along Maiduguri/Damaturu highway, left two civilians injured from gunshot wounds.
A state government rebuilt residential building was also burnt in the attack. Damian Chukwu, Commissioner of Police at the Borno State Command, said the injured civilians were responding to treatment at the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital while uniformed forces had secured the area.
“Normalcy has since been restored, while monitoring around the town and environs continues,” Chukwu said.
The aforementioned area where the attack was repelled separates Borno and Yobe, which alongside Adamawa, are the states worst affected by the insurgency.
