Suspected Boko Haram terrorists are currently attacking Borno village of Zabramari, some 10 kilometres from Maiduguri in Borno State, SaharaReporters can report.

The insurgents came in a convoy of utility vehicles to attack Zabramari, located in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State, at exactly 5pm, and opened fire on civilians, killing a yet unknown number of people.

A resident of the village told SaharaReporters that the soldiers withdrew after they were overpowered by the insurgents, prompting thousands of civilians in the rice-producing community to flee.

Details later.
