SAD! Medical Workers Pull Out After Deadly Attack On Rann
Thursday was a sad day for people of Rann in already ravaged northeast state of Borno.
The cut-throat terrorists attacked a military facility in that town, killing 11 people, including three United Nations aid workers.
Because of the incident, some medical workers who were doing charity work in the town have suspended their activities.
The medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said on Friday it had suspended its work in Rann and evacuated national and international staff after the deadly raid.

“Following a violent attack in Rann, Borno state, on Thursday March 1, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) suspended its medical activities in the town and evacuated 22 national and international staff,” MSF said in a statement.
“It is still unclear how many people were killed and injured but before leaving, MSF medical staff treated 9 wounded patients,” it added.
The incident occurred barely two weeks after suspected Boko Haram members attacked a girls school in Dapchi, neighbouring Yobe State and took away 110 teenage girls.
Reactions have followed the attack.
The United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, and a former Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan, have condemned the attack and called for concerted effort to end the activities of the group that started more than eight years ago.
