In the Askira Uba Local Government Area of Borno State, suspected members of the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) are purportedly carrying out an attack.
According to the Daily Trust, insurgents set fire to buildings in Dille village, Askira Uba Local Government Area, Borno state, which was also assaulted over the weekend.
An eyewitness told the publication that the terrorists stormed the village around 5:30pm, looted many stores, carted away food items and also torched the houses they stole from.
Details of the casualties are yet to be known. The recent attack is coming barely 48 hours after Brig-Gen Dzarma Zirkusu and some soldiers were killed in an ambush in the state.
The army retaliated by reportedly killing 50 terrorist commanders.
