The United Nations Office for coordination of humanitarian affairs, in Nigeria has bemoaned the attack on the convoy of a non governmental organization, Action against Hunger by suspected Boko Haram which led to the death of one person while six others remain missing in Borno state.

The ACF humanitarian workers came under attack as they were traveling from Maiduguri to Damasak, the headquarters of Mobbar local government area.

The humanitarian community in Nigeria is also asking the general public, including the media, to refrain from sharing any unconfirmed information.

The spread of misinformation may put the concerned aid workers at risk and jeopardize their way back to safety.
