Borno town, Konduga, under Boko Haram attack

Breaking News

A town in Borno State, Konduga, is currently under attack by suspected Boko Haram terrorists,  reports reaching PREMIUM TIMES indicates.

A top security officer confirmed this to a PREMIUM TIMES reporter.  

Konduga is about 35 kilometers from Maiduguri, the Borno state capital, and has been repeatedly attacked by the extremist Boko Haram sect.

The town was first attacked on February 11 this year by Boko Haram gunmen who killed 39 persons, injured several others even as they set ablaze over 1000 homes, including the palace of the community’s District head.

In their bid to expand their conquered territories and possibly attack Maiduguri, the Boko Haram sect, in September 2014, attempted to invade the Borno capital through Konduga, but met a terrible defeat when they lost over 200 of their members, including a top kingpin, then suspected to be the group’s leader, Abubakar Shekau.

Despite the defeat, the insurgents reorganized and launched yet another attack on the community on September 15 but still met with a stiffer counter-attack by Nigerian troop that led to another massive loss of their members.

Two days after that attack, the terrorists returned to the town yet again. But they were again repelled by the military and members of the Civilian-JTF, who reportedly killed about 400 of them.

Monday night’s attack is about the fifth in the series of major attacks on the town by insurgents.

    Jonathan didn’t want elections to hold. With or without elections he must GO period.

      Meanwhile, in Kenya, the Police Chief and Interior Minister were immediately dismissed after al-Shabab killed circa 35 people in the country.

      Talk about effective leadership.

  • Dr. Hassan

    Excuse me. I am in a bus and heading to Kondunga. Should i go back?
    I have just escaped this afternoon from Boko Haram attacks in Damaturu.

      If you are a Christian leave the Sharia states entirely. If possible come down to the South you will be in good hands. Many Northerners are happy living with our people in the South, ba wahala.

      • Abdullahi Abba Bukar

        This is a good suggestion. A Christian leader is keeping the Christian areas safe and supplying arms to Boko Haram with CAN President’s plane to destroy the Muslim areas. Dr you can go but remember it will be easier to kill you in their homes.

        • Nwa Aba {Biafran}

          What a brainless people?
          Christians sponsoring boko haram to kill Muslims?
          CAN did not introduce Sharia that was implemented on twelve northern states that gave birth to Islamic Jihadists Boko Haram

          • Abdullahi Abba Bukar

            Biafran you are succeeding. You haven’t got the news? “Serving and retired police officers, Christians of Igbo origin, were arrested at Nsuka with arms enroute to Boko Haram” – VOA News. The officers confessed supplying arms to Boko Haram.

          • Otile

            Man, you continue saying this, but nobody believes you.

        • Otile

          I don’t agree with you. Jonathan has done more for Northerners than Southerners and you know it. Ask the people of SW and SE in particular what Jonathan has done for them, nada. At best all he has done for the people SE is promises and empty promises.

          As for hating the North or supplying weapons to Boko Haram, that is bunkum. Boko Haram knows where to get their weapons, they don’t need Jonathan’s help.

        The indigenous christians cannot move to the south though. So what do you want them to do, Otile? The voted overwhelmingly for GEJ and now they have to migrate to his side of Nigeria to stay safe?

        • Otile

          Throughout SW SE SS we do not discriminate. Who said that people cannot move to the South? Just try Eko, Enugu, Asa or Calabar you never go back to the North. Take away corruption Nigeria is one of the best places to on earth to live. Try other countries and see what I am talking about.

          move to the South? Just try Eko, Enugu, Asaba or Calabar you never go
          back to the North. Take away corruption Nigeria is one of the best

      • Dr. Hassan

        My Friend,

        Thank you very much. I took your advice. i turned back. I drove to Ekiti state.
        But on getting there now i was caught in massive shooting near the prisons.
        The gunmen were shouting Allahu Akbar. They were the same Boko Haram!
        They killed all the prison officials. They killed all the Alsatian dogs at the prison.
        Please what should i do now? Should i go back to Damaturu or run to Owerri?

        • Otile

          Come down to Pitakwa, the Garden City, our people are accommodating. You will see a lot of South Westerners and Northerners mingling with everyone as it ought to be, ba wahala.

        • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

          Dr. Hassan,

          Otile has kindly extended an invitation for you to come down to Pitakwa, the Garden City, so that you can be safe.

          However, if I may add, could you please stop enroute at Ilorin and see if a Cleric can prepare amulets and charms for you as you would need these to protect you from armed robbers and kidnappers.

          Whisper: There is no point asking the NPF for help as they are too busy chasing politicians around.

  • growthengine

    Maybe they have information that Konduga has become vulnerable. The only way to stop Boko Haram getting the upper hand is to attack them and keep them on the back foot.
