Many people are feared dead after an Islamist militant attack on a northeast Nigerian town, two residents and a vigilante said on Saturday.

The militants struck Gudumbali in the Guzamala region of Borno state at around 4 p.m. on Friday wearing military uniforms and firing upon Nigerian soldiers and residents, the witnesses said.

The Nigeria troops and thousands of residents have fled, they said.
