Three persons were feared killed on Sunday when suspected members of the Boko Haram insurgents attacked humanitarian workers in Borno State.
Sources in Maiduguri said two others persons were also kidnapped by the insurgents in a new attack along the Maiduguri-Monguno road.
Details of the attacks are still sketchy as officials within the UN offices said it is too early to give correct figures of casualties.
A usually reliable UN source said the two of the abductees were female.
“I can confirm to you that the sad incident happened today along Monguno road but one cannot be certain about the actual figure yet,” said the source who craved anonymity.
It was gathered the attacked humanitarian workers are employees of an international NGO called Alima.
Alima is the first NGO to set foot on the reclaimed town of Monguno in June 2016 when it commenced humanitarian aid operations in Borno State. It is still providing services in Monguno to date.
