A Local Government Area is reportedly under severe attack by the Islamic State West Africa Province terrorists.

It has been gathered that this attack which happens to be the third one in a month in Damboa comes barely six days after the attack that killed a general and three other officers of the Nigerian Army in Chibok/Askira Uba in southern Borno.

In a publication cited on The Punch, the report indicates that the insurgents arrived at the town around 5:30 am Friday morning and are currently setting houses and public property on fire.

Although no live has been lost, however, Damboa is one of the few towns that refused to be taken over by the insurgency despite its proximity to Sambisa.

It is said that Damboa continue to be a target of several attacks by the ISWAP terrorists.
