Boko Haram Attacks Adamawa Town, Kills Five
Five people were feared killed Friday by suspected Boko Haram insurgents in an early morning attack in Kaya village of Madagali in Adamawa, residents and local officials have said. Kaya is a one-kilometre drive from Gulak, the administrative headquarters of Madagali. The attack came two days after a similar incident in Pallam where Boko Haram militants killed three people. Residents say soldiers and local hunters who chased the insurgents were able to shoot two of them dead.
Boko Haram attacked Kaya village, at about 10 pm. The chairman of Madagali, Yusuf Muhammad, also confirmed the incident but said he had no details yet. Madagali is one of the frequently attacked major towns in the northeastern state of Adamawa by Boko Haram insurgents.
Mr. Kamale, who spoke on the telephone on Friday, said while the military continued to make claims of ‘decimating’ the insurgents, the situation in Madagali had been “seriously underreported” in a series of security reports filed by the military to Mr. Buhari.
“The truth remains that the group is still very active in our areas,” the lawmaker said.
‘’We are calling on Mr. President not only to match words with actions but should endeavor to come and see our plight, because the insurgents are truly killing more people than he is even aware of, particularly in Michika/Madagali local government areas of Adamawa State.”
