Only about six days after the attack that killed a general and three other officers of the Nigerian Army in Chibok/Askira Uba in southern Borno, Damboa, another neighbouring Local Government Area is currently under severe attack by terrorists of Islamic State West Africa Province, according to The PUNCH.

This attack is the third one in a month in Damboa.

Though reports are sketchy, information available as of the time of filing this report indicates that the insurgents came to the town early around 5:30 am Friday morning and are currently setting houses and public property ablaze.

No reports of human casualty yet but Damboa is one of the few towns that refused to be displaced by the insurgency despite its proximity to Sambisa and being a target of several attacks by the ISWAP terrorists.

Details soon…
