Militants from the Islamic State-backed faction of Boko Haram, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), formerly known as Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād are currently attacking Auno, a village in the Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State.
According to reports, the insurgents stormed the community on Monday morning, shooting heavy artillery.
The situation forced people to scamper for safety and remain indoors as the shooting continued, according to a soldier.
He added that the troops overpowered the terrorists in a gun battle, forcing them to flee.
“It’s not clear if there are any casualties. I can’t say maybe anyone was abducted as well, it was an attack on commuters plying the highway in the community,” the source said.
