“WFP can confirm that a convoy escorted by the Nigerian military including WFP-hired trucks was the subject of an attack by armed groups 35 km southwest of Ngala in Borno State on Saturday.

“Four people, including the driver of a WFP-hired truck and a driver’s assistant, were killed in the incident.”

“WFP is working with the authorities to determine the whereabouts of the trucks,” the spokeswoman Jane Howard said in a statement.

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

The military has not commented on this latest attack.

The Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) has approved the withdrawal of $1 billion from the Excess Crude Account by the Federal Government to intensify the war against terrorist group, Boko Haram, in the northeast.

This was disclosed by Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki, after the National Economic Council (NEC) meeting held inside the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
