Feb 27, 2014 – Boko Haram Attacked 3 Villages In Adamawa State After Border Closure
Boko Haram terrorists have intensified their effort to destroy the north after attacking 3 villages in Adamawa state last night.
This is coming 2 days after the Federal Government ordered the closure of Nigeria-Cameroon border in Adamawa state.
Security operatives believed most terrorists used the border as an entry point to Nigeria.
Last night, the terrorists attacked 3 villages in Madagali & Michika LGA in Adamawa.
According to Madagali LGA chairman, Maina Ularamu, the attackers suspected to be Boko Haram militants attacked Kirchiga before heading to Shuwa town killing unspecified number of people.
“They came to Kirchiga at a little after 8p.m and opened fire sporadically at the people,” Maina said.
He however could not confirm any casualty figure as at midnight on Thursday.
Mr. Ularamu added that the gunmen also attacked neighbouring Shuwa town, adding that the sounds of gunfire could still be heard in the town as at the time we spoke to him.
Also, a resident of Michika town, who declined to be named for security reasons, told PREMIUM TIMES that he could hear gunshots in the town.
He reported intermittent sounds of gunshots and said most people in the town had run home for safety.
The spokesperson of the Nigerian Army in Yola, Nuhu Jafaru, could not be reached to comment for this story. Calls to him were unsuccessful as his telephone line failed to connect. [Premium Times]
