Four persons were allegedly killed and food trucks hijacked when Boko Haram guerrillas attacked a United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) aid convoy in Ngala, Borno state at the weekend.

The attack was the latest in the region as the conflict with Boko Haram nears its ninth year.

“WFP can confirm that a convoy escorted by the Nigerian military including WFP-hired trucks was the subject of an attack by armed groups 35km southwest of Ngala in Borno State on Saturday,” the spokeswoman Jane Howard said in an emailed statement, Vanguard reports.

“Four people, including the driver of a WFP-hired truck and a driver’s assistant, were killed in the incident,” the statement said, adding that “WFP is working with the authorities to determine the whereabouts of the trucks.”


The spokeswoman declined to comment on whether the driver and assistant were WFP staff, or give details about the other two people killed.

The Nigerian military has however, denied there was any civilian killed in the attack.

This is so painful that voluntary organisations rendering selfless services are targetted for attack and molestation. God help us.
