Breaking: Boko Haram Sustains Deadly Attack At Adamawa-Borno Border
Several villages in the Michika and Madagali areas were reportedly razed by Boko Haram insurgents, causing residents to flee to Gulak, Mubi and other towns on Sunday, March 31.
According to Daily Trust, the terrorists killed scores of the people during the attack.
The insurgents destroyed property in Kuda-Kaya village. The incident reportedly culminated in a fierce fight with local vigilantes, on Sunday, 31 2019.
This development reportedly follows series of similar attacks on several villages along the Adamawa-Borno border.
Yakubu Nkenke, chairman of the Chibok Parents Association, said one person died when Gatamarwa village in the Chibok area was burnt by the terrorists on Thursday, March 28.
In his words: “I am currently attending the funeral of the man killed by Boko Haram on Thursday. The village has been destroyed. Since the beginning of the year, several villages including Daimbo, Makalama. Yimirali-Autlha, Yimirali- Barka, and Yimira have been attacked.”
The armed insurgents reportedly also attacked Hantsa, a Madagali village, on Wednesday, March 27, killing one person.
Residents are said to have expressed concern over the distribution of troops in the area; lamenting that villages were left unprotected while soldiers are stationed in major towns.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a community leader reportedly stated: “These villages and the connecting bushes are the routes to Sambisa forest and other hideouts of the insurgents.
“There is need to deploy troops to block these routes and prevent such attacks. The number of attacks on villages is becoming worrisome.”
