A few days earlier, a similar incidence took place in a neighbouring village in the Local Government, known as Mildu, where seven people were killed by the insurgents.
According to the Chairman of Madagali Local Government Council, Yusuf Muhammed, 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.
“They looted foodstuff, killed livestock and burnt the village completely,” he stated.
Mr. Muhammed said that the exact number of dead and injured people had yet to be ascertained and that villagers who escaped the attack were currently taking refuge at Gulak, the headquarters of the council.
However, the Spokesman of the Police Command in Adamawa, Othman Abubakar, confirmed the attack, but said no life was lost.
