According to a Daily Trust report, hundreds of civilians have fled Gulak town, the headquarters of Madagali Local Area as Boko Haram made bold attempt to take over the town.

It was learnt that a large number of armed militants attacked the town around 6:30 pm and engaged the military in battle.

A fleeing resident who spoke to our correspondent on phone said he believed the insurgents had displaced the military and police from the town.

"Boko Haram have taken over the town and thousands of us are here in the bush, We don't know what will happen to us. Can't you hear gun shots?".

Major Badare Akintoye, the spokes person of the 28 Task Force Brihade in Mubi did not answer calls from our reporter.

However, a military source who did not want his name published confirmed the attack, saying a reinforcement was sent to the town.
