Boko Haram attacks Adamawa, kills 100, destroys 60 houses
Many people were feared dead on Thursday in a fresh attack by Boko Haram Islamists on Ghumbili community in the Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State. The attack comes a few days after a similar incident in neighbouring Mildu village in the local government, where seven people were killed by the insurgents.
Confirming the attack, the Chairman of Madagali Local Government Council, Mr. Yusuf Muhammed, told the News Agency of Nigeria that the attack lasted from 11 pm on Wednesday to 3 am on Thursday.He said that the jihadists burnt no fewer than 60 houses and looted foodstuffs.
Muhammed said that the exact number of the dead and the injured people had yet to be ascertained and that villagers who escaped the attack were currently taking refuge at Gulak, the headquarters of the council. But the spokesman for the Police Command in Adamawa State, Mr. Othman Abubakar, who also confirmed the attack, said no life was lost.
Speaking on the development , the Executive Chairman of the Adamawa State Emergency Management Agency , Mr. Haruna Furo , said that only one person was killed and that many houses were destroyed .
Boko Haram appears to have raised its onslaught in recent weeks in its eight - year bl**dy insurgency that has claimed thousands of lives .
