The Nigerian Army earlier yesterday said its fighter jet misfired and shot some humanitarian aids of ICRC, Medicine San Frontiers (Doctors without borders) and some civilians in Kala-Balge.

Maj. -Gen. Lucky Irabor told Nigerian media the military received a report about a gathering of Boko Haram terrorists in the area before launching Tuesday's strike.

"I coordinated and I directed that the air component of the operation should go and address the problem".

"We are sending helicopters to evacuate those that were critically wounded, including our wounded soldiers".

A close government source, who did not want his name mentioned said, "more than 100 innocent civilians were killed in the incident". There are casualties; there were deaths and injuries but on the actual number of casualties, we would get back to you later.

A humanitarian worker who was not authorized to speak on the issue said the air bombardment in Rann is worrisome. Irabor said "some" civilians were killed, the AP notes. "Many were said to have been in critical condition as evacuation is to be done".
