No fewer than ten people were feared killed Saturday in a renewed attack by Boko Haram on Ajiya Wagga village in Madagali Local Government area, northern Adamawa state.
The insurgents attacked Sabongari town leading to the death of one person while six women were abducted.
A fleeing resident of Ajiya Wagga, Timothy Wagra, said the insurgents struck in the middle of the night while the villagers were asleep and started shooting sporadically in the process killing many.
“Many people are still in the bush as they fear another attack by the gunmen while some fled to neighbouring villages,” Mr. Wagra said.
Reports say that said many villagers have sustained various degrees of injuries and are being evacuated to hospitals for proper medical attention.
The council chairman Maina Ularamu also confirmed the incident.
“At least ten people were killed during the attack,” he said. “The insurgents arrived the village around midnight Saturday and shot several people.”
However when contacted, spokesman of the Adamawa State police command, Othman Mohammed, said the police were yet to receive an official report of the incident.
