Boko-HaramUnconfirmed reports claim Boko Haram gunmen have taken over the highway linking Maiduguri and Damaturu, the state capitals of Borno and Yobe respectively.

A police officer, stationed in one of the villages along the highway, confided in PREMIUM TIMES that travelers are being asked to return as the insurgents have taken over the road between Benisheik (a town 85km away from Maiduguri) and Ngamdu (35km away from Damaturu).

The officer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said Boko Haram had attacked Ngamdu village and killed 10 persons there.
