The battle is ongoing in Gadaka after the insurgents invaded the town in a bid to take control of it.
Soldiers are however said to be working hard to repel the attack, according to The Cable.
“As I speak to you now, there are three fighter jets bombarding the militants. They came to the town in large numbers last night and the military responded this morning,” a source said.
“They wanted to take over the town, because they were even telling people to leave and threatening to kill those who would not obey. More Boko Haram members wanted to gain access to Gadaka this morning but they were unable to enter the town because it rained heavily last night and the whole road has been taken over by flood,” the source added.
