Earlier today we reported that the residents of Michika, so as several other towns and villages, started fleeing their homes after Boko Haram had repelled military to recapture Madagali.
Heavily armed Boko Haram men have reportedly taken over Michika, one of the key towns in Adama state. According to Sahara Reporters, the sect men arrived the town today September 7th, chased out Nigerian troops and hoisted their flag in the town. This is coming three days after the militants seized Gulak town.
Nigerian military jet was flying over the area without attacking the insurgents, said Sahara Reporters with reference to the evidence given by the fleeing locals.
Soldiers from the 23 Brigade in Yola, Adamawa state, are said to have been mobilized to prevent the sect men from taking over Mubi, a key city which is some kilometers away from Michika.
