Boko Haram storms Maiduguri with anti-aircraft guns, kills 14 (PHOTOS)


An attack by Boko Haram jihadists in Maiduguri killed 14 people, police said on Thursday, the first official toll.

The fighters had attacked the city's suburbs on Wednesday night with anti-aircraft guns, said Damian Chukwu, police commissioner of Borno State, of which Maiduguri is the capital.

Maiduguri is the epicentre of the eight-year fight against Boko Haram, and has been largely free of violence for the past two years. Reuters
