Boko Haram members have launched an attack on Babbangida town in Yobe State, residents say.

The terrorists invaded the town on Saturday, December 3, and engaged security personnel in a fierce gun battle.

A resident, Mohammed Hassan told ThisDay that the insurgents attacked the military base near the town, the police station, the local government secretariat, the Government Lodge and the boarding primary school and had the intention of destroying all the facilities.

“The security forces from what we have seen so far have been able to repel them, but we are still entertaining fear that the battle may continue today,” Hassan said.

Hassan also added that the affected areas had been cordoned off by the military and that the casualty figure remains uncertain.
