The Boko Haram fighters reportedly, stormed Maikadiri in Abadam Local Government Area on Friday evening in two pick-up and started shooting into homes.
A member of the local vigilance group, Adam Kolo, in a telephone interview with a Punch Newspaper correspondent in Maiduguri on Saturday, said the sect had shown that there was no ceasefire with the latest attack.

Also in a renewed attack on Shaffa, Hawul Local Government Area, south of Borno on Saturday morning, scores of Boko Haram insurgents rode to a village near the town in the early hours of the day, shooting indiscriminately. Eight people were killed, according to a resident, Elijah Msheliza. 

He told our correspondents that many of the residents of the town had fled into the bush.
Msheliza said, “There was pandemonium in Shaffa as Boko Haram invaded the nearby village, shooting at everybody at sight. We had to flee into the bush and, as I am talking to you, many of us are taking refuge in the bush.”
The Federal Government have not commented on the renewed attack.
