According to local reports, many of the residents of the town have fled to Maiduguri,  the state capital, and have been seen at the Baga motor park in the city.
One of the fleeing residents, Ibrahim Kaka, told journalists in Maiduguri that the insurgents have hoisted their flag at the headquarters of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) after attacking the military base. 

Kaka said he slept in the bush and trekked several miles before he got a bus which brought him to Maiduguri.
