At least seven people were killed on Friday when Boko Haram fighters attacked an Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp in Ngala Borno State.
Ngala, which has its headquarters in Gamboru Ngala is located near Nigeria’s border with Cameroon.
Two people were also killed by a blast outside another camp in Maiduguri, the state capital.
A civilian militia member in Ngala, Umar Kachalla, said insurgents in two pick-up trucks fired a rocket-propelled grenade at the camp, which houses some 80,000 people.
“The insurgents fired an RPG into the camp from behind the fire fence, killing seven people,” he said.
