A convoy supplying trucks alleged to be of the UN World Food Programme carrying IDP foods on their way to Gamboru Ngala came under attack Saturday afternoon around Musuni village in northern Borno.
An informed source on Saturday, within the humanitarian agencies in Borno, confirmed to DAILY POST that, the trucks may belong to the United Nations WFP.
He said although the WFP logistics department is yet to confirm if their trucks were attacked, a signal has been sent from the military for the logistics department to confirm whether trucks that went out to supply food to IDPs in the northern Borno have reached their destination.
According to our source, the heavily armed group of Boko Haram kills four drivers and took away three others together with one truck full of food items for Ngala IDPs.
“The insurgents also burnt one truck as the soldiers escorting the trucks could not contain them,” he said.
He also said that only UNWFP trucks carry supply to Ngala in northern Borno while the Danish Refugee Council do the distribution on behalf of UNWFP and for that reason, the trucks attacked may not belong to any other agency, but the WFP.
