The action comes just months after they took Michika and several of Adamawa’s other important towns.

Residents and fleeing troops told SaharaReporters that the militants arrived around noon after successfully attacking neighboring towns in an overwhelming attack that began last night.

Nigerian troops guarding the barracks initially exchanged fire with the militants but fled after more militants arrived in the area with heavy firepower.
