BORNO: Death toll from deadly ISWAP assault rises to 69

The Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) has reportedly attacked another Local Government Area in Damboa, in the southern part of Borno State.

This comes barely six days after the attack that killed a general and three other officers of the Nigerian Army in Chibok/Askira Uba in the same area of the state.

This attack is the third one in a month in Damboa.

Although reports are still sketchy, Ripples Nigeria learnt that the insurgents came into the town as early as 5:30 am on Friday and were currently setting houses and public property ablaze.

The town has been a target of several attacks by the ISWAP terrorists.

More details soon…
