Boko Haram insurgents have killed two persons after raiding an Internally Displaced Peoples(IDPs) camps in northeast Nigeria, Emergency Services said Friday.
According to the report, Boko Haram fighters on motorcycles and two motorised rickshaws invaded Dalori camp, Maiduguri, Borno state, on Thursday, shooting people and looting food supplies after overrunning a nearby military base.
“We have recovered two dead bodies from the attack which also left several IDPs (internally displaced persons) with injuries,” said Bello Danbatta, head of security in the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA).
“The insurgents looted and burnt shops in the camp and also carted food supplies from the main store where food aid is stored,” he said.
“They (Boko Haram) chased the soldiers away and burnt the base before forcing their way into the camp, shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ (God is Great),” said camp resident Aisa Kyarimi.
“They started shooting and we all fled the camp,” said the mother of three.
