Fulani Herdsmen Kill 15 After Army Disarm Residents In Adamawa Villages
Fleeing residents told our reporter that Bolki, Bang and Gon were overran by suspected Fulani militia who razed down many buildings in the affected villages.
They alleged that the attackers stormed the area shortly after troops of the Nigerian Army ransacked the villages to enforce the disarmament of citizens in line with a presidential directive.
Chairman of Numan Local Government Area, Hon Arnold Jibla confirmed the attack.
He, however, declined to provide fatality figures as according to him, the attack was still raging at the time of this report.
However, locals said that no fewer than 15 persons have been killed in the Wednesday evening raid, just as they said property worth millions of naira have been destroyed.
The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO Othman Abubakar could not confirm outright, saying he was yet to be briefed but promised to get back.
Numan local government has experienced several herdsmen/farmers clashes in the past six months.
