“Afterwards, they headed to the CJTF Outpost and set it on fire. They also burnt one vehicle of the CJTF,” the humanitarian source disclosed.
The source also revealed that the troops of the Nigerian Army repelled the attack but could not ascertain if there was any casualty on the side of the terrorists.
