Boko Haram Storms Adamawa Village Kills 12


Some armed persons suspected to
be members of the Boko Haram
sect on Saturday night attacked a
village in Adamawa State, killing
12 people.
While narrating how the attack occurred, Maina Ularamu, a former
Chairman of Madagali Local
Government Area, said the
insurgents attacked Dar Village in
the council at about 8:30 p.m.
“A large number of gunmen invaded the village, forcing
resident to flee to nearby bush,”
Mr. Ularamu said in a telephone
He added that “two female suicide
bombers disguised as fleeing villagers detonated explosives in
the bush where many people were
hiding, killing twelve persons.”
He added that many victims who
sustained injuries were evacuated
to the hospital by police personnel. The spokesperson of the Adamawa
Police Command, Othman
Abubakar, confirmed the attack,
but did not provide details.
The Boko Haram insurgency in
Northern Nigeria has killed about 20,000 people; with Adamawa,
Borno, and Yobe most affected.
The attacks have continued despite
a change of government that saw
President Muhammadu Buhari
replace Goodluck Jonathan after the latter lost the presidential
election in March.
The Nigerian military, however,
says it is winning the war against
the insurgents and has recovered
several territory from them. Source: PremiumTimes
