Military-Boko Haram Battle: Nigerians in Borno Flee to Niger Republic
“Most of the residents of border villages of Borno have fled to Niger. About 2,000 people from Abadan, Malam Fatori and other villages are now refugees in Difa, Niger Republic,” a top security officer said on Sunday.
The security source said the Joint Military Task Force was on the trail of members of the Boko Haram sect, who were dislodged from the Sambisa Game Reserve and other camps on Thursday in Borno State.
“They are in hundreds and running out, some on machines, cars and bicycles and others on foot running out of their homes to Niger Republic,” he told SaharaReporters. “You know they are afraid of what happened in Baga, and they have firsthand experience because Baga is very close to their villages. They have been hearing gun sounds and heavy weapons being positioned”, A fleiing Nigerian says.
It was learnt that residents of Maiduguri and other communities far from the border, who did not want to be caught in the cross-fire had also fled with their belongs.
