The Borno state government and local vigilante groups said on Wednesday, the Nigerian town of Bama remains under government control after an assault by Boko Haram, contradicting reports that the Islamist group had seized much of it. The attack on Bama began on Monday, and on Tuesday residents and several security sources, including a soldier on the ground, said the insurgents had overrun much of it. Nigeria's military has remained silent since the attack began. A defence spokesman did not respond to requests for comment.
