Boko Haram terrorists have retaken Damasak, the Headquarters of Mobbar Local Government Area of Borno State after reportedly dislodging the Nigerian security forces.
Damasak, a border town with Niger Republic is about 160kilometres, north from Maiduguri, the state capital which had suffered several attacks from the terror groups.
Also, unconfirmed report claimed a United Nations Helicopter was shot at by terrorists in the axis.
Sources informed that the insurgents stormed the Damasak Sunday evening in a convoy of gun trucks loaded with Improvised Explosive Devices, IEDs, and Rocket Propelled Grenades used to overwhelm troops at their base before taking control of the town, as hundreds of residents were trapped and others fled for safety.
