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]

  1. First is Yobe and now Adamawa. Even the United Nations secretary general has condemned this atrocity. Goodluck Jonathan, what are presidents for? Do you want some states to be brutally wiped off the map before you step up and destroy the enemy within? Its a shame that this is what has become of Nigeria.

  2. what do you want the president to do? Boko Haram adopts a gorrilla kind of terrorism that is extremely had to curtail.. U cant pin them down in a particular territory. They keep repositioning while attacking remote communities.Again the northern elites sympathize with bh that make it difficult to extinguish them. I really feel sorry for the victims.

    • @ wetin… U just spoke like a dummy#smh4u#. So if BH adopted a guerrilla kind of terrorism, d president should just fold his arms abi? #takingastroll#.

  3. D 1st day i heard BH leader had been killed,i laughed… Hw cn u kill sum1 wtout any prove? Nw,luk @ wad is goin on nw… More killin… Goodluck is mkin things hard 4 d 3 dangerous states in d north,u snt d armies dere,stil no gd info… They even attack d armies.. I alws lik d way US do dia thing,no info,jst action…. B4 info. Dt’s hw they succeeded by killin osama…

  4. @ wetin, you are right, it is very difficult to fight this type of war, this people don’t have a particular base or camp, they come in from neighboring countries like Cameroon where they are hidding only in the night just to come out and kill people, even if you see them in the day you will not recongnize them, wheather GEJ condemn the killing or not it will not change anything, if our neighboring countries in the north can join hands with the Nigeria army i think things will change but not to end the war, even they Americans are tired of fighting terrorist attacks in afghanistan being the reason they are pulling out.
