12 Villagers Feared Killed In Adamawa Ambush


The military and members of the vigilante group in Adamawa have repelled an attack by Boko Haram on Kaya village in Madagali Local Government Area of the state.

Boko Haram terrorists attacked the community at about 9:00 pm on Monday night and burnt down 13 houses before the military and vigilantes repelled them.

The Adamawa State Commissioner of Information Ahmad Sajoh who confirmed the attack to Channels Television says one Boko Haram member was killed and a vigilante member wounded.

Although the military has curtailed the activities of the insurgents in Adamawa, Madagali has continued to witness attacks.

These attacks have led to the loss of lives and destruction of properties with the terrorists believed to be looking for food items.

The Chairman of Madagali LGA, Mohammed Yusuf, also confirmed the attack. He called for the deployment of more security personnel, especially now that farming activities are picking up. He warned that further attacks may expose the communities with famine.

Monday’s attack comes two weeks after another Madagali community – Mildu – was attacked by Boko Haram insurgents.
