Heavy gunshots and explosions have been reported in the outskirt of Maiduguri Wednesday [May 13] evening, according to AfricanSpotLight.
The gun battle is reportedly going on 10km away from Borno state capital Maiduguri, around Bama Road.
According to Maina Kachallah, “Lightening in the sky. Boom, boom, booms. People running. Guns rattling. Something really wrong in Maiduguri.” “Guns rattle, red streaks all over. Heavy heavy artillery sounding everywhere. Really, really, something is wrong,” he added.
“Bullets or something bigger, maybe I don’t know, but heavy. Boom, boom, booms. What is really happening?”
“Everybody is running…so I have to follow. Not knowing where to run, I just took my family and left home… anywhere away from home.”
