UN confirms Boko Haram’s attack on aid facilities in Borno
The United Nations has confirmed Boko Haram’s attack on its aid facilities in northeastern Nigerian town of Dikwa in Borno State.
In a statement released on Tuesday March 2 by UN’s humanitarian coordinator in Nigeria, Edward Kallon, it was gathered that the insurgents directly targeted the facilities.
Kallon said the premises of several aid agencies and a hospital were reportedly set ablaze or sustained damage.
The statement read;
“The attack started last night and, as information is still coming through, I am outraged to hear the premises of several aid agencies and a hospital were reportedly set ablaze or sustained damage.
“This violent attack will affect the support provided to nearly 100,000 people who are desperately in need of humanitarian assistance and protection.”
