The Nigerian Army says six Boko Haram members were killed in an attack against the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) trucks in Ngala, Borno state.

According to them, no innocent person was killed during the attack.

Jane Howard, spokeswoman for WFP, had said four people, including the driver of a WFP-hired truck and a driver’s assistant, were killed in the incident.

However, Rogers Nicholas, theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, countered the report, according to NAN.

Nicholas said the reports credited to WFP were not factual, as the army unit escorting the trucks killed six insurgents and recovered weapons during the attack.

He explained that there were no civilian casualties in the attack, adding that he was in Dikwa local government area when the incident occurred.

“There was an ambush but the soldiers killed six Boko Haram insurgents and recovered weapons,” he said.

“No civilian was killed.

“I was in Dikwa that Saturday and this happened while I was within.”
