Many people were feared dead on Thursday in a fresh attack by Boko Haram Islamists in Ghumbili community in the Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa.
The attack comes a few days after a similar incident in a neighbouring village in the Local Government, known as Mildu, where seven people were killed by the insurgents.
Confirming the attack, the Chairman of Madagali Local Government Council, Mr. Yusuf Muhammed, told newsmen that the attack lasted from 11 p.m. on Wednesday to 3 a.m. on Thursday.
He said that the jihadists burnt no fewer than 60 houses and looted foodstuff. “They looted foodstuff, killed livestock and burnt the village completely,” he stated.
