“It was around 5am yesterday (Saturday) when we started hearing gunshots and they gain entrance into the Multinational National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) where they killed many civilian leaving in the barrack,” he said.

Another fleeing resident, Modu Isa, said that the insurgents also followed people fleeing to the bush where they killed many people.

“They did not spare anybody as they shot at men, women and even children who were fleeing inside the bush,” he added.

This publication established that some of the residents were now occuping the Jajeri primary school behind the Baga market and while several indigenes of the town residing in Maiduguri were at the Baga motor park to search for their relatives.
