“The attack was not repelled and troops at the locations were dislodged. Dozens were killed, but details are scanty on casualties,” the source said, noting that more attacks are imminent.

“The attacks are not going to cease as Boko Haram terrorists are desperate. There is urgent need to inform all units in the axis covering Damasak, Mallam Fatori, Magumeri, Gubio to be on high alert as the terrorists are emboldened to launch more attacks during the rainy season.”
