Maiduguri, the Borno State capital in Nigeria’s troubled North-East, is in turmoil as there is heavy fighting between soldiers and Boko Haram fighters for the control of the capital city.

A breaking news on Punch Online says “there is heavy shooting between men of the Joint Military Task Force and heavily armed militants, sending panic across Maiduguri.”

“Residents are said to be presently scampering for their lives, students are being hurriedly picked from schools and workers are returning homes,” the report says, adding:

“The streets are reported to gradually becoming desolate except the presence of the warring parties.”
