The federal government has blamed the repeated insurgent attacks on villages in northeast Nigeria on poor intelligence gathering by locals.

Secretary to the Government of the Federation, David Babachir, who went on an on-the-spot assessment on the insistence of the President was accompanied by the Minister of State for Health, Foreign Affairs and that of Power.

The Federal Government expressed belief that if locals begin to play surveillance and intelligence gathering roles, such attacks could be averted.

Over 50 people were said to have been killed in the attack by insurgents. They also burnt almost everything in sight.

The Borno State Deputy Governor, Usman Durkwa, expressed worry about the level of devastation and despair insurgency has brought upon people of the state.

The state emergency agency had since began the construction of temporary shelter for the now homeless and displaced Dalori villagers.
