Boko Haram insurgents on Tuesday attacked Damasak town in the Mobbar Local Government Area of Borno State.
A military source that spoke with SaharaReporters disclosed that the terrorists, however, were repelled by the soldiers of the 145 Battalion.
The source further stated that the terrorists came into the community through the area of the town where civilians live, just like during Saturday’s attack.
He, however, said the soldiers were fully ready for the militants both in the air and on the ground.
As of the time of filing this report, the source could not confirm if any of the terrorists was killed, or any civilian was attacked.
He said, “We were under attack but the jet is here. Everything is calm now. They came from town again but they left when we overpowered them.”
“I cannot tell if anyone died today or if the militants set any house on fire again but I will confirm that later.”
