The dreaded Boko Haram sect has captured the town of Bosso, which is located in the southern part of Niger, reports say.

Vanguard reports that the sect members engaged a combined military team of soldiers from Niger and Nigeria in a fierce gun battle.

According to reports, the Mayor of Bosso told newsmen that the incident occurred today, Monday, June 7, 2016.

This is coming on the heels of an attack on the international military team on Friday, June 3, 2018, that left 32 soldiers dead.

The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has also issued a warning, saying the Boko Haram sect is plotting to carry out large scale bombings during Ramadan.

Also, the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) on Sunday, June 5, 2016, urged Muslims in Borno state to be vigilant and wary of beggars around Mosques during the fasting month of Ramadan to prevent suspected attacks from Boko Haram members.
