Alhaji Bashir Garga, NEMA’s Northeast Zonal Coordinator, made the disclosure in a statement in Maiduguri.

“One disabled person was allegedly killed and 65 houses were burnt, while 200 cows, 300 sheep and goats were carted away”.

Garga added that those wounded in the attack were provided with treatment, noting that humanitarian needs assessment is being conducted to ensure mobilisation of immediate relief assistance to the victims.
