Boko Haram Overruns Bama Town

Suspected members of the dreaded Boko Haram sect yesterday launched an attack on Bama town in Borno State.

Soldiers attached to the Nigerian Army barracks located in the town engaged the insurgents in over an hour of heavy bombardment and eventually pushed the militants back.

Reports say most residents of the town, which is about sixty four kilometres from Maiduguri, the Borno State capital have fled their homes for fear that the insurgents might return heavily armed on a retaliatory mission.
