4 Killed, 3 Abducted As Boko Haram Ambushes UN-hired Truck in Borno

About three aid workers with the World Food Programme, WFP, have been kidnapped while four others killed in Borno State, last Saturday.

The WFP is the food-assistance branch of the United Nations.

In a statement sent to Premium Times, the WFP said the gunmen ambushed one of their military-escorted convoy of food trucks taking supply to an internally displaced persons camp in Ngala village of Borno State on Saturday.

Four persons were confirmed killed during the attack. Sources also told this medium that three other persons were abductedby the gunmen, suspected to be members of Boko Haram.

According to the WFP’s Communication Officer at the Maiduguri area office, Adedeji Ademigbuji, two of the four persons killed were the truck driver and his assistant.

But sources familiar with the attack told the online newspaper that three other persons were taken away by the gunmen who drove the food trucks to an unknown destination. WFP in its confirmation email was silent about the abduction of the three other persons.
