 At least four persons were killed on Saturday evening as suspected members of ISWAP swooped upon Damasak, a border community in Borno State.

A soldier, according to se­curity sources, was reported to be among the four killed by the Boko Haram faction.

The attack was mostly targeted at the UN and NGO facilities in Damasak just as a police station and a hospital were attacked, sources said.

The sources claimed that the attackers came in large numbers on motorcycles and gun trucks, and attacked an area around the UN hub, set­ting it on fire.

Similarly, another witness reported that while most of the UN and other NGO work­ers were able to move into the bunker at the UN hub, the in­surgents set fire on virtually all the NGO offices and ware­houses.

They were said to have set fire on the UN hub, the GISCOR office, as well as IN­TERSOS, NRC offices before carting away their vehicles.

The eyewitness also said the insurgents went to the General Hospital in Damasak and looted drugs and related medical facilities, but one of their commanders prevented them from setting fire on the hospital because there were patients in the wards.

The Damasak police sta­tion was burnt down as the police reportedly took to their heels upon sighting the insurgents advancing toward the station.
