ISWAP Fighters Storm Borno Hospital, Set Telecoms Mast On Fire, Steal Health Products

On Wednesday, November 3, suspected Islamic States of West African Province (ISWAP) rebels attacked a community hospital and set fire to a telecommunications mast in Mugumeri Local Government Area of Borno State.

During the raid, alleged Islamic States of West African Province (ISWAP) gunmen seized medicines and other supplies from the hospital, according to DailyTrust.

They were divided into two groups, according to a security source.

While the military was exchanging fire with a group of ISWAP members, another group entered the hospital and stole medications, a refrigerator, and some bedsheets.

“They attacked the town from behind, burning down Airtel Mast and ransacking the hospital. They went away with drugs, a refrigerator and some bedsheets,” the source said

Magumeri is some 40 kilometers away from Maiduguri, the state capital.
