The Islamist terror group, Boko Haram seized Bama, the largest town in Borno State, after a fierce battle with the Nigerian Army. The Army initially repelled the attack but the group returned with reinforcements to seize the town. They travelled in armoured trucks and first took control of the military barracks.
Two Boko Haram members were captured by CJTF in Maiduguri. The suspects confessed to having killed 35 people during the capture of Bama in 2014.
Soldiers and residents reportedly fled on foot, many of them walking all the way to Maiduguri, the state capital.
The overall Forum Assistant Secretary of CJTF, Muazu Alhaji Misiya posted the photos today and wrote:
