N'DJAMENA (Recon News)--0300 local time--Outlaw army Boko Haram of Nigeria has been successfully repelled from the Borno State capital of Maiduguri following a ground initiative to take the city by armed assault.

News reports indicate the BH units advanced initially along two major routes from the south,  Route A4 West from Dalwa and Route A4 East from Konduga. However the advancing light-armor units were halted in proximity of those two small towns, approximately 16 and 22 miles respectively from the capital.



Aircraft and heavy artillery has been reported via social media accounts and local JTF civilian combat irregulars were put to task to repel the offensive.

Other reports indicate BH assaulted from at least two other directions in an attempt to completely encircle the city and cut off any possibility of lines of communication being established from the outside to the defense forces tasked to protect the civilians.

Aircraft reportedly used in the counter-offensive were believed to be from Chadian defense forces.
