PostSubject: B’Haram captures another Borno town, Cameroon kills 143 terrorists...   Wed 14 Jan 2015, 6:59 am

The Boko Haram sect has attacked
another town, Askira in Borno State,
some fleeing residents of the town
told journalists in Maiduguri on
Tuesday.
According to one of the residents of
the town, Yusuf Mohammed, who
fled to Maiduguri, the insurgents
attacked the town in a convoy of
Toyota Hilux vehicles and
motorcycles at about 3.35 pm on
Monday.
He said the terrorists, who were
armed with Improvised Explosive
Devices and petrol-bombs, torched
several public buildings, including
a secondary school, the Divisional
Police Station and telecom masts.
Mohammed, who arrived Maiduguri
on Tuesday morning in a pickup van
with some other passengers, said,
“As we were about to depart the
motor park yesterday (Monday)
afternoon, we saw some insurgents
chanting Allahu Akbar (God is great)
in Arabic.
“They burnt down a school in the
town. They did not stop there they
proceeded to the police station and
a health centre and threw IEDs at
the buildings.”
The residents of the town who, he
said, were shocked, fled into the
bush and nearby communities.
Inuwa said their vehicles were
mounted with Rapid Propelled
Grenades and they shot
sporadically and chanted Allahu
Akbar (God is great, in Arabic).
He narrated that he had to flee
along with six passengers in the
taxi to Maiduguri through Mbalala-
Chibok Road.
On casualties, he said, “I cannot
give you the number of casualities
but we saw some bodies on the
road, while we were fleeing
towards Mbalala.”
Askira is a predominantly farming
community bordering Adamawa
State, and 252 kilometres south of
Maiduguri, the Borno State capital,
the birthplace of the Boko Haram
insurgency.
A police source told our
correspondent that there was a
report of insurgents’ attacks on one
of the towns in Southern Borno
Senatorial District.
He said, “I cannot give you the
casualty figure, but some public
buildings were
burnt, including our station in
Askira town, 60 kilometres west of
Uba near Mubi town in Adamawa
State.”
Meanwhile, about 143 Boko Haram
fighters were reportedly killed in
an attack on a military camp in
Cameroon on Monday.
The Cameroonian Minister of
Communications, Issa Bakary, who
said this in a statement on Monday,
added that it was the heaviest loss
sustained by the Boko Haram sect
in the country.
He said, “The terrorists lost 143
members and important warfare
equipment made up of assault
rifles of various brands, heavy
weapons and bullets of all calibres.
“On the Cameroon side, we lost one
life, Corporal-Chef Bela Onana,
while four other soldiers were
wounded.”
It was not immediately possible to
independently verify the toll from
the fighting near the northern
town of Kolofata..
