The insurgents stormed the community around 5:30 p.m., according to Vanguard. Many people were thought to be dead, while others were injured (including the terrorists). Property has also been reported to have been set ablaze.

The District Head of Damboa, Zanna Lawan Maina, confirmed the invasion into Damboa but said he couldn’t provide details because the only telecommunication service (Airtel) was not clear enough for residents to communicate with.

“Yes, armed terrorists invaded Damboa this evening; however, I am not in town because I am on official business.

“Unfortunately, we were unable to gain access to Airtel’s only existing telecommunication service to determine the situation at the time of the incident,” Maina told Vanguard.
