According to Premium Times, Soldiers, who arrived Mainok after the insurgents had wrecked havoc on the community, then chased the attackers, killing about 48 of them.

The Mainok market was attacked on Friday at about 1:30 p.m. as traders planned to suspend trading to go observe the Friday ‘Jumat’ prayers.

More than a dozen traders were killed in the market while others who were fleeing were either injured by stray bullets, or knocked down by vehicles as they ran across the Kano-Maiduguri highway.
