A gun duel between Boko Haram insurgents and security operatives in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital have left many persons dead. It was gathered that the insurgents tried to lunch an attack on University of Maiduguri from the northeast behind the military trench behind the university. The Nation reports that the attack has caused pandemonium around settlements like Mairi, Kaleri and Constein which are sharing fence with the University. “People are just running in no direction. The explosions were coming from our area. What I cannot say is if people have died,” a source told The Nation.
