The assault on Maiduguri, with a population of around two million, began just after midnight. A raid on Monguno, 140 km (80 miles) north, began later in the morning and the town fell under militant control by the late afternoon. "An exclusive coordinated air campaign has taken over from ground forces in Monguno, as troops had to retreat from the location," defence spokesman Major General Chris Olukolade said in an emailed statement.
