In Monguno, insurgents with rocket launchers killed at least 20 soldiers, set fire to the police station and burned the United Nations humanitarian hub. They distributed leaflets to residents, telling them not to work with the military, white Christian Westerners or other "non-believers".
In Nganzai, insurgents on motorcycles and in pickup trucks killed more than 40 residents.

ISWAP claimed responsibility for the attacks in Monguno and Nganzai, as well as the Gubio massacre, which occurred in Borno State four days earlier.
