Gunmen suspected to be Abubakar Shekau’s Boko Haram terrorists have attacked Muslim faithfuls midnight of Saturday while observing Tahajjud, a midnight prayer observed in the last ten days of Ramadan.
It was learnt from an eyewitness that the terrorists opened fire on a congregation at a mosque in Sajeri, close to Ajilari Cross, a satellite town of Maiduguri.
Many residents and members of the congregation have fled the community for safety.
A resident of the area who also fled to neighbouring Ngomari airport area, Malama Lucy, said about a dozen people may have been taken away by the rampaging insurgents to an unknown destination.
She said the attack took many residents of the area by surprise, rising the blood pressure of many, including her mother who is hypertensive.
