According to reports, a fresh attack by suspected members of the Boko Haram on two communities in Adamawa has claimed the lives of many.
Residents ran for their lives as the terrorists attacked Nyibango and Muduhu, both in Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa.
This is coming after a similar incident rocked a neighbouring Mildu village in the same local government that claimed lives of not less than seven people.
Reacting to the Monday attack, the Chairman of Madagali Local Government Area, Yusuf Muhammed, said the attack lasted for nearly two hours.
“They looted foodstuff, killed livestock and burnt the villages completely, including churches and the residence of one councillor, John Hammajam” he stated.
Mr. Muhammed said that the exact number of dead and injured people had yet to be ascertained and that villagers who escaped the attack had fled the area.
Also speaking, the lawmaker who represents Madagali/Michika Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Adamu Kamale, also said that Madagali Local Government Area is the worst affected by insurgency in the state.
Mr. Kamale in a telephone interview said the local government needs high government presence particularly security officials.
“Madagali is still experiencing sporadic attacks by the insurgents and needed urgent attention,” Mr. Kamale said.
Recall that the Army said Boko has been defeated, and that the major leaders have surrendered.
