TEHRAN (IQNA) – Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) on Saturday said it carried out a morning attack on the northeast Nigerian city of Maiduguri as the country held elections, although the army has denied an attack took place and says sounds of fighting were drills.

Security sources said the militants struck in the town, and Reuters journalists heard blasts and gunfire. However, the Nigerian army has denied any attacks took place and said the sounds were of military exercises.
