Boko Haram insurgents have captured another territory in Yobe State on Wednesday after attempting to take Bama, a town not far from Maiduguri in Borno State.

The sect has few weeks ago taken over Buni Yadi, the sleepy town in Yobe state where over 59 boys were murdered in a school last year.

Reuters reported that the newly captured town was taken over by the Islamist fighters without any resistance, with witnesses saying that the town has no Nigerian troops guarding it.

“They went preaching in the whole town asking people to leave government work and join them to do the work of Allah,” Musa Abdullahi, a trader who escaped from the town of Bara said.
