3 killed as Boko Haram attack





Monday night,three people were killed  when Boko Haram insurgents attacked three communities in Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State.


A security intelligence officer in the LGA who spoke in confidence Monday morning said the insurgents who stormed Shuwa, Shuari and Kishingari, also destroyed 20 shops and three cars and made away with moveable properties, including a utility van.

Other witnesses said the insurgents got to Madagali in several vehicles and operated for hours before soldiers turned up to engage them in a gun battle and succeeded in getting them to flee.


The Adamawa State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Othman Abubakar, confirmed the attack on Madagali during a telephone conversation Tuesday morning, but said information at his disposal did not indicate that anybody was killed.

He confirmed that a team of security personnel dispatched to the area had brought the situation under control.

The attack in Madagali calls to question how or whether elections will hold there come February 16 and March 2. Security around the LGA had long been in doubt, prompting the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to announce a restriction of voting in the entire LGA to just three communities, including one of the communities, Shuwa, that was attacked Monday night
