The Nigerian troops have repelled an attempt by Boko Haram Terrorists to overrun Dalori internally displaced persons (IDP) Camp in Maiduguri on Thursday night, security sources said to SaharaReporters.

A reliable source noted that hundreds of the IDPs had fled in Dalori axis Maiduguri city in fear of the attack.
