At least three members of the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) were killed on Friday when suspected members of the Islamic State of the West African Province (ISWAP) attacked humanitarian workers in Monguno local government area of Borno State.
Three humanitarian workers were also reportedly kidnapped by the terrorists.
An Intelligence report obtained by Zagazola Makama, a Counter Insurgency Expert in the Lake Chad, said the insurgents carried out the attack on Friday night at about 9pm.
The terrorists reportedly stormed the town through the axis of Marte in Marte local government area of the state. Approaching the Gana Ari community in Monguno, they reportedly went straight to a compound housing humanitarian workers, shooting sporadically.
A credible intelligent source said they attempted to steal three vehicles, but could not take them out of the compound, adding that they later abducted three workers.
According to the source, the insurgents proceeded to a compound of the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), and took one hilux vehicle before proceeding to attack and kill three members of the Civilian Joint Task Force. They also burnt their vehicle and shot one other member on his leg.
