6 Persons Killed In Fresh Attacks In Maiduguri

Six people have been reported dead in Maiduguri, after an attack by suspected Boko Haram militants.

The Joint Task Force (JTF) reported that two people were killed on Thursday during a gunfight between suspected Boko Haram members in Maiduguri, before gunmen killed four people at a nearby market.
"My men were patrolling around the market after it closed," Police Commissioner Bala Hassan said after confirming the death toll from the attacks.

It will be recalled that President Jonathan, on Wednesday, lifted a state of emergency in several local government areas in Borno State, ahead of the holy Islamic month of Ramadan, which is observed by most of Nigeria's estimated 80 million Muslims.
