ISWAP Intercepts Four Food Trucks Meant For IDPs In Borno

Four trucks out of a convoy of 40 trucks of food meant for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and resettled communities in Borno, have been intercepted and looted by members of the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP).


Daily Trust reported that the attack occurred Thursday night, July 7, around Layi village in Mobbar Local Government Area of the state, and it came barely 48 hours after terrorists launched a heavy attack on Kuje Medium Security Prison in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) freeing at least 69 Boko Haram suspects and hundreds of others. The terrorist group has already claimed responsibility for the attack.


Confirming the attack on the food trucks, top security sources told the publication that the food and nutritional products consignment was on its way to Damasak.


It was part of the palliative by the World Food Program (WFP) for IDPs from Abadam and victims of the Boko Haram violence returning to their homes in Mobbar.


A source said;


“The attackers were in four gun trucks. After heavy attacks on the convoy, they succeeded in intercepting four of the vehicles and emptied nearly everything from the vehicles.”


It was also alleged that the terrorists are now taking control of major roads and strategic areas in the southern and northern parts of Borno.
