Boko Haram has again attacked Rann, a town in Kala Balge local government area in Borno state.

The insurgents were said to have destroyed the UNICEF clinic, the only healthcare centre in the frequently attacked region of the local government.

Sources within the area told TheCable that the Nigerian army repelled the insurgents after a fierce gun battle.

Mijin Yawa, a resident of Kalabalge who also confirmed the attack, said the insurgents stormed the town with various caliber of weapons, anti-air craft guns and mounted trucks.

“There may be a lot of casualties but from what I am hearing, the soldiers have repelled the attack and are dealing with the terrorist,” Yawa said.

“I was told that some villagers fleeing the attack got caught in cross fire”.

Another source said the whole Rann was thrown into confusion as many residents fled into the bush.

Rann local government is housing thousands of IDPs, who are supported by international non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

The insurgents attacked the town in March this year, killed many security personnel and abducted three aid workers.

Calls from TheCable to Sani Usman, the army spokesman, did not get through and text messages were not returned.
