Reports have it that five people were killed today, Friday at Kuya village of Madagali local government area of Adamawa State. This is coming barely 48 hours after suicide bombers killed 12 and injured 65 in Maiduguri. According to residents of the area, the terrorists launched the attack on unsuspecting sleeping villagers, as well as burnt two houses and carted away foodstuff. Alhaji Adamu Mohammed, a stakeholder in the area said Boko Haram terrorists carry out attacks on a daily basis while their communities were now at the mercy of the insurgents and the government had not done anything to tackle the situation. Mohammed lamented that the attention of the government had shifted to the crisis between farmers and herdsmen, forgetting Madagali which he said was at the receiving end of Boko Haram carnage.
The Police in Adamawa could not make any official statement at the time of this report even as the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Othman Abubakar, told newsmen that he was yet to be officially briefed on the matter. Madagali is one of the local governments that have suffered repeated suicide bombings and attacks by the insurgents in the recent times. Kaya village is one kilometre from Gulak, the administrative headquarters of Madagali local government.
