The attack, which was reportedly launched by members of Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) faction of Boko Haram terrorists, allegedly took place some minutes after 12 midnight, Thursday morning.

Many of the terrorists were said to have been killed during the attack.
The Nigerian Army was yet to confirm the incident as at the time of this report.
