Rihanna Wins Court Battle with Topshop and she is $5.5 Million Richer!

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.
