Some armed men who are suspected to be fighters of the Islamic States of West Af­rican Province (ISWAP) on Wednesday attacked a com­munity hospital and burnt down telecommunications mast in Mugumeri Local Government Area of Borno State, according to Independent.

A witness said after storm­ing the headquarters of the local government, they fired at all directions.

It was gathered that the at­tackers stole some drugs and other medical consumables.

A security source dis­closed that they divided themselves into two groups.

While the military ex­changed gunfire with a group of the ISWAP fighters, the other group sneaked into the hospital to steal drugs, a refrigerator and some bedsheets, according to the source.

“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.
