Wednesday’s attacks came a day after the Presidency said the armed forces and security agencies were on top of the situation.
The defence headquarters also said on Monday that its offensive against the insurgences has continued in spite of recent attacks.
Reactions from the defence headquarters and the presidency came on the heels of a no-hold- barred by Borno State Governor Kashim Shettima that Boko Haram insurgents were better armed and better motivated than Nigerian troops.
Presidential Aide ,Dr Doyin Okupe has however faulted the governor.Okupe said Shettima lacks the expertise to classify any weapon.
