Suspected Boko Haram terrorists have sacked Gudumbali town, the Local Government Headquarters of Guzamala Local Government Area of Borno State.
One of the residents who spoke to ChannelsTV on Saturday said the attackers looted food items and reportedly carted away with about five gun trucks.
Many are feared dead in the attack which occurred on Friday evening while food items were being distributed to the civilian population.
Some soldiers were reportedly dislodged by the assailants and are said to be taking refuge in a nearby military location at Damasak, where troops have been on red alert for the rampaging insurgents in the area.
The attack comes amid increased threat from the terrorists around the lake region in the northern part of the state.
The Nigerian army is yet to issue a statement confirming this latest raid by the insurgents.
