They carted away aid supplies meant for the Internally Displaced Persons before they set fire to the UN hub in the town and three other buildings belonging to other aid organisations.”
A military source that confirmed the incident said the troops were fighting hard to ensure that the terrorists did not overrun the town.
“They planned to attack the military base first, but we repelled the invasion. Pockets of them then went to the UN facility. The Nigerian Air Force aircraft have been called in and they are currently engaging in air interdictions on the terrorists.”
Meanwhile, a few hours ago, the insurgents were reported to be attacking the town again making it the 8 time this week.
