Nine soldiers and 56 insurgents might have been killed in the attempt of the Boko Haram sect  to  capture Maiduguri on Sunday morning.

The attack on the town began at about 12.30am and could not be totally suppressed until about 11am.

It was gathered that hundreds of heavily armed insurgents tried to gain entrance into the town through Jinikin-Moronti, on the road linking Maiduguri to Damaturu along the Jos-Kano highway and close to two major housing estates, 1000 and 707.

The suspected terrorists were confronted by the soldiers and other security operatives of the 33 Battalion Barrack at the entrance to the town.

The battle initially raged from 12.30am to about 3.30am, when the attack was thought to have subsided.
