Reports from Borno and Yobe states Saturday evening have it that Malumfatori in Abadam local government area of Borno state, Buni Gari in Yobe state, and Muna garage within Maiduguri, the Borno state capital, came under attacks by suspected members of the Boko Haram sect.

Although there is yet to be official confirmation of the attacks, residents and security sources in Yobe state have confirmed the attack in Buni Gari, saying that the terrorists laid siege to the town since 5:30pm this evening (Saturday).

It was not clear whether or not the terrorists have been repelled as text message to military platforms requesting confirmation to claims by residents and other sources was not officially communicated back as requested.

While some residents are saying that the siege is still on as Boko Haram militants have taken control of the town of Buni Gari, other sources said Nigerian Air Force fighter jets have arrived the town and with the combined ground troops disband the siege and repelled the insurgents who arrived in large number.

For the attack in Malumfatori, Veloxnews gathered that due to lack of network in the area efforts towards communication are on to get facts on ground from the military through other means.

A source in the Barracks told our correspondent that there was no report available yet on the attack.

Speaking on the attack on Muna Garage in Maiduguri, residents of the area said two female human bombs attempted to make an inroad to detonate their vests, but while they were sighted and security forces ordered them to stop, one of the girls detonated her vest killing herself while the other disappeared and is being hunted by security operatives within the city of Maiduguri.

Meanwhile, several calls made to the Yobe state Police Commissioner, Mr. Abdulmalik Sunmonu on his mobil phone for confirmation of the reports did not yield result as the calls could not connect as at the time of this report.
