According to Punch, community members said the attack took place on Sunday when the insurgents stormed the town in seven gun trucks and 12 motorbikes and headed straight to the army base.

“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,” a resident said.

The resident said that the insurgents regrouped and returned to the army base in the early hours of Tuesday but the army repelled them.

The spokesman for Operation Lafiya Dole, Col. Ado Isa, could not be reached as his phone lines failed to connect.

But men of the Civilian Joint Task Force in Damboa confirmed the attack, stating that 22 insurgents were killed while five soldiers paid the supreme price.

KanyiDaily had reported how Boko Haram terrorists attacked the convoy of Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, as he was returning from Baga to Maiduguri.
