The Nigeria army on Thursday imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew on the restive north-eastern town of Maiduguri in the aftermath of a Boko Haram attack on the city, a military statement said.

"In view of the recent development within Maiduguri metropolis a 24-hour curfew is hereby imposed in the city," army spokesperson Colonel Tanko Gusau said in the statement.

"This is done to protect lives and properties of innocent and law-abiding people of Maiduguri," capital of Borno state.

Boko Haram fighters launched an attack on the city on Wednesday but were repelled by Nigerian troops after intense clashes, residents and the army have said.

Dozens of militants armed with heavy guns and rocket-propelled grenades stormed the northern outskirts of the city near Giwa military base, shooting and firing explosives indiscriminately, local witnesses told AFP.
