BREAKING: Boko Haram Descends On Borno LGA, Wreck Havoc

-Scores feared Dead

Arms-bearing hoodlums suspected to be members of Boko Haram, have invaded Damasak, the headquarters of Mobbar local government area of troubled Borno state and wreaked havoc without resistance.

It was gathered that the armed insurgents razed down the Divisional Police Command, schools, shops and residential houses as they hoist their flags in strategic locations.

According to the chairman of  Mobbar Local Government Area, Hon. Mustapha Bunu Kolo who confirmed the attack which happened late on Tuesday, the incident was disturbing, as the remaining humanitarian hubs in the town were razed down, including Police Station, Market, shops and residential houses.

“Yes, there was another devastating Boko Haram attack in Damasak right now… Though I am not in Damasak, as I travelled out for official engagement, but based on the information at my disposal, the insurgents invaded the town since 5 pm and are still holding ground as at this time (10:40 pm).

”The insurgents have succeeded in razing down remaining humanitarian hubs, market, shops and an unspecified number of residential houses, as they detonated their Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) without confrontation”, Kolo stated.

He said he was also informed that many people lost their lives in the attack, but didn’t have the actual number of casualties as the insurgents were still very much around and  continued to wreck havoc on innocent civilians.

All efforts to get confirmation from the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Edet Okon proved abortive at press time.
