The Army on Saturday repelled fresh attacks by the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) on at least three local government areas of Borno State.
The terrorists attacked Monguno, Ngazai and Gubio local government areas almost simultaneously at about noon, shooting sporadically.
Soldiers returned fire, engaging the invaders for a long spell.
The terrorists abandoned the fight in the face of superior fire from the troops.
Thousands of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) residing in the town were said to have fled for safety.
Boko Haram terrorists had, in another attack on Wednesday, killed over 70 people at Faduma Kolomdi village in Gubio Local Government Area of the state.
The insurgents, who rode into the village in gun trucks and motorcycles, also carted away many cattle.
