Rampaging Boko Haram terrorists had unsuccessfully tried to capture Madagali town in Adamawa State today evening.
A distress caller from Madagali told SaharaReporters that heavy shooting can be heard all over the town as the Nigerian Army tried to push back the insurgents.
This latest attack on Madagali is coming one week after the terrorists were repelled by troops around the same area.
There is, however, no details on what damage or state of casualty the situation may have caused at the moment as calm has returned to the town.
SaharaReporters has learned that Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, is expected in Adamawa tomorrow.
