Dozens have been killed in at least five attacks in Adamawa state soon after the Nigerian government said they reached a ceasefire agreement with Boko Haram on Friday.

The Islamist extremist group has not yet claimed responsibility, but its militants are the assumed perpetrators.

One of the conditions of the truce included the release of the hundreds of schoolgirls kidnapped from Chibok more than six months ago.

Nigeria’s military has made bold pronouncements about Boko Haram in the past, only to backtrack later.
