Soldiers walk through Hausari village during a military patrol near MaiduguriBy Lanre Ola and Ardo Abullah MAIDUGURI/BAUCHI, Nigeria (Reuters) - Nigeria's military repelled multiple attacks by suspected Boko Haram militants on Borno state capital Maiduguri in the northeast, security sources said on Sunday, but the insurgents captured another Borno town. 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. The militants also simultaneously attacked another town, Konduga, which is 40 km (24 miles) from Maiduguri, but the military was able to repel the raid.

By Matthew Mpoke Bigg ACCRA (Reuters) - Pan-African lender Ecobank will comply with an order by a court in Ivory Coast to publish in international media a judgment in a defamation case brought by its former chief executive even as it appeals against the ruling, a bank spokesman said on Sunday.

The court said Ecobank and the Public Investment Corporation (PIC) of South Africa must pay Tanoh $15 million for defamation in a ruling Tanoh's lawyer said re-established his honour. The PIC is the largest asset manager in Africa and one of the top shareholders in Ecobank, a bank headquartered in Togo and listed in Nigeria, Ghana and on the West African regional bourse BRVM.
