Gunfight Between Boko Haram And JTF In Yobe

Boko Haram

Explosions and shooting between the Joint Task Force (JTF) and suspected Boko Haram militants were heard throughout last night in Potiskum, Yobe State.

Some residents, contacted by phone, said that they saw scores of corpses as they attempted to escape being caught in the gunfight, which intensified around midnight. Some of them said they slept in fear or could not sleep.

In the past few days, the JTF has had similar gunfights with suspected militants as it continues its Cordon and Search Operation in Potiskum.
