Residents of Jiddari Polo in Maiduguri, Borno state capital, are currently running for cover following an attack launched by Boko Haram fighters, it was learnt.

This online platform earlier reported that President Buhari headed straight to Borno State on Wednesday to pay a condolence visit after he returned from Ethiopia where he attended the African Union (AU) summit.

However, a report monitored by Naijaparry on TheCable Wednesday evening has it that shortly after the President left, Boko Haram attacked another community in Maiduguri, the state capital, shooting sporadically for over 30 minutes.

“We are under serious attack right now. Boko Haram stormed the town hours after the president left,” a resident told TheCable.

It will be recalled Buhari while speaking earlier at the palace of Abubakar Elkanemi, the Shehu of Borno, declared that Boko Haram could not exist without local support.

“This Boko Haram or whatever they are, cannot come up to Maiduguri or environs without the local leadership knowing because traditionally the local leadership is in charge of security in their own respective areas. So with my understanding of our culture, I wonder how Boko Haram survives up till now,” he had said.
