Five dead, many injured as Boko Haram terrorists loyal to Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) attacked Damasak community of Mobbar Local Government Area of Borno State.
Locals disclosed that the assailants destroyed the United Nations Hub housing all the workers of the international organisation.
According to Daily Trust report, the hub was established in Damasak, located 188 from Maiduguri in the northern part of Borno to fast track support for victims of Boko Haram excesses. The town had survived several attacks in the last 11 years.
Insurgents stormed Damasak in the evening and engaged the troops from multiple locations, which led to the burning down of the UN hub and others infrastructures. It was further learnt that while some of the terrorists were engaging the troops at their camps, others were busy burning NGOs warehouses near the UN hub.
An eyewitness told the publication that the residence of the traditional ruler of Damasak, and the Norwegian Refugees Commission (NRC) facilities at Fulatari Ward were burnt.
The local said;
“The warehouse of the World Food Programme (WFP), which was filled with assorted food items, was completely looted.
“They also carted away medicine and other equipment at a nearby government hospital. They stole the belongings of the poor people who are already in need of support.
