The Council headquarters of Damboa in Borno state has been invaded by suspected terrorists and they are all armed to the teeth. At the point of their invasion they started shooting sporadically as they engaged troops locations.
A security source said the insurgents invaded the town around 5pm.
The source said shortly after the fighters stormed the town, the network went off, raising suspicion that they destroyed it.
Troops are currently engaging the armed men in a gun battle. The attack happened hours after Lieutenant General Farouk Yahaya, Chief of Army Staff, tasked his men to remain committed to secure the nation.
