Boko Haram Attacks Borno Residents Days After Sending Warning Letters

Several people including security operatives have been reported killed by a Boko Haram attack on Damboa Village.

According to The Nation, the insurgents had earlier written to the communities of Damboa of their planned attack. Though they were said to have made several failed attempts until Wednesday today when the lunched their attack.

Some of the eyewitnesses said the insurgents came at about 30 gun trucks mounted and began to fire sporadically at anything within sight.

The soldiers were said to be in position, ready to repel attacks, having been pre-informed of the planned attack by the insurgents

“ When they starting shooting people began to run to the bush. The hunters and CJTF along with soldiers engaged them, but it seems they have come prepared until the soldiers get air support before the insurgents began to withdraw, ” Adamu Yusuf disclosed.

Another resident, Isa Adamu said, the insurgents were being expected since yesterday, but they did not show up until this morning and they came from three directions, a situation which almost threw the soldiers into confusion.

Sanusi Ibrahim said both the ground soldiers and the airforce support helped the soldiers to overcome the attackers.

We are lucky because of the Air force jet. It would have been worse without them. The soldiers on the ground also did well,” he informed.

Damboa is located between Alagarno and Sambisa forest. It has been one of the vulnerable villages prone to Boko Haram attack because of its proximity.
