Borno: Boko Haram ambush security operatives escorting APC stakeholders from ward congresses in LGAs

Suspected members of the Boko Haram sect yesterday ambushed security operatives escorting APC stakeholders near Kareto village, who were on their way to Damasak, Mobbar and Abadam Local Government Areas in Nothern Borno to participate in Saturday ward congresses of the party.

Damasak and Abadam share a border with the Niger Republic and are located about 200kms drive from Maiduguri, the State capital.

Sources said the attack, which has claimed some lives including security operatives, hindered the conduct of the exercise in two local government areas, as the delegation withdrew and aborted the journey back to Maiduguri.

All efforts to get confirmation from the State’s Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Eket Okon, proved abortive at press time.
