An attack reportedly launched by Boko Haram insurgents in Damboa community of Borno state has left a pregnant woman and five others dead.

 

Punch reported that the attack which occurred on Sunday October 25, also left 7 others injured. The publication which reported that troops of the Nigerian Army equally killed a number of the insurgents, added that the insurgents stormed the town in seven gun trucks and 12 motorbikes and headed straight to the army base.

 

A resident said;

 

“It was our market day, villagers went to the market. As we were preparing to return to our homes, we heard cars passing; then shortly, we heard gunshots from the army base.

“The army engaged the insurgents for hours after which the Boko Haram fighters ran away. The people that were killed were people coming back from the market, they ran into the attack. Six civilians were killed, one pregnant woman, one Almajiri and four other men.”

 

It was further gathered that the insurgents regrouped and returned to the army base in the early hours of Tuesday October 27, but the army repelled them. Operatives of the Civilian Joint Task Force in Damboa reportedly confirmed the attack, stating that 22 insurgents were killed while five soldiers paid the supreme price.
