Boko Haram Overruns Mubi in Adamawa, Takes Over Army Headquarters
Barely 2 hours after Abusidiqu reported that the Boko Haram insurgents group are advancing towards Mubi town in Adamawa State, after launching fresh assaults in Uba and Hildi, tow towns located between Borno and Adamawa State, the sect has entered Mubi in Adamawa State, taking over the headquarters of the 234 battalion in the town, which is one of the State’s largest, SaharaReporters said.
The sect carried out their attack on Mubi town after successfully attacking neighboring towns in an overwhelming attack that began last night.
Residents and fleeing troops told SaharaReporters that the militants arrived around noon
Nigerian troops guarding the barracks initially exchanged fire with the militants but fled after more militants arrived in the area with heavy firepower.
It would be recalled that the sect had few months ago taken over Michika and several of Adamawa’s other important towns.
The latest is coming despite claims by the government that a ceasefire negotiation is ongoing with the sect in Chad.
