Suspected Boko Haram members have killed no fewer than four people during a raid on an Internally Displaced Persons camp on Saturday in Borno State northeast Nigeria.

The gunmen entered the camp in the town of Banki near the border with Cameroon in the night. The source said shots drew the attention of soldiers and policemen outside the camp, who then engaged the militants in an hour-long gun battle.

Two terrorists were killed in the fight and the rest fled. A member of a militia force assisting the military said the attackers used ladders to scale a ditch dug around the camp.

Hours later, two soldiers were wounded when their patrol vehicle hit a landmine planted by the fleeing jihadists at Freetown village, nine kilometres away from Banki.
