UN fa­cil­ity raided

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

MAIDUGURI: Nige­ria’s mil­i­tary raided a UN fa­cil­ity yes­ter­day in Maiduguri, the north-eastern city at the epi­cen­tre of a con­flict with Is­lamist in­sur­gency Boko Haram, a UN of­fi­cial said.

The ob­jec­tive of the search could not be de­ter­mined, but it could dam­age an al­ready tense re­la­tion­ship be­tween the mil­i­tary, the UN and aid groups tack­ling one of the world’s largest hu­man­i­tar­ian crises sparked by the Boko Haram con­flict.

The mil­i­tary and pres­i­dency did not re­spond to re­quests for com­ment.
