Boko Haram kills 11 in Adamawa

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Kabiru R. An­war, Yola

Boko Haram mil­i­tants killed at least 11 peo­ple and burnt three vil­lages in Mada­gali LGA of Adamawa State be­tween Wed­nes­day and early yesterday, Daily Trust gath­ered.

Res­i­dents re­ported at­tacks on Bi­tiku,

Kubu and Kirchinga vil­lages. A res­i­dent said at­tack­ers on horses and a camel raided Bi­tiku late Wed­nes­day, killing peo­ple, burn­ing houses and forc­ing many res­i­dents to flee.

The House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives mem­ber from Michika/ Mada­gali Fed­eral Con­stituency, Musa Ka­male, urged the fed­eral gov­ern­ment to do more to end in­ces­sant at­tacks on vil­lages in the area.

“While oth­ers are in cel­e­bra­tion mood, we spent the night mourn­ing our peo­ple. We need more se­cu­rity per­son­nel as our vil­lages share borders with the Sam­bisa for­est”, he said.

For­mer chair­man

of Mada­gali LGA, Maina Ularamu, called for mil­i­tary posts in the sur­round­ing vil­lages. He faulted the de­ploy­ment of sol­diers to ma­jor towns of Gu­lak and Mada­gali while the mil­i­tants are ac­tive in vil­lages.

“The in­sur­gents at­tacked a group of traders re­turn­ing from Gu­lak mar­ket and killed four of them be­fore pro­ceed­ing to Kirchinga where they slaugh­tered seven per­sons in­clud­ing three women”, he said.
