A witness told Daily Trust that the Boko Haram insurgents operated in Krangla community, which is about eight kilometers away from the town.

While a military convoy reportedly whisked the traditional ruler out of the town, many residents had to flee into the bushes and surrounding mountains to escape the attack.
