The two border towns of Bama and Gwoza have been cut off since the declaration of a state of emergency with soldiers blocking the roads linking the town to the state capital, Maiduguri ... Escapees from Bama were forced to take bush routes through Dikwa, a town 60km away from Bama and 150km from Maiduguri to get to the state capital.
On September 2, 2014, Boko Haram seized control of Bama, according to the town's residents. The military has yet to comment on the alleged capture of the town.
