Residents have begun to flee a northeast Nigerian city where a radical Muslim sect launched attacks that killed more than 100 people.
Rev. Idi Garba said Tuesday that nearly all the Christians and non-natives of Yobe state had fled their homes in Damaturu, the state capital. Garba said streets remained deserted, without soldiers or police protection.
More than 100 people died in bombings and gunfights Friday in Damaturu, an attack claimed by a radical Muslim sect known as Boko Haram.
Boko Haram has been carrying out a string of targeted assassinations for more than a year by gunmen on motorcycles and carrying out bombings in northeast Nigeria. At least 360 people have been killed in those attacks this year alone, according to an Associated Press count.
