4 persons killed in Adamawa attack

Unknown gunmen have attacked Kamale community in Michika local government area of Adamawa State.

The invasion has resulted in the death of four persons, while some others have sustained various degrees.

Present in the area during the attack was the Senator representing Michika/Madagali in the House of Representatives, Honourable Adamu Jamal, who was lucky to have escaped death.

The legislator was said to have escaped journeying through the mountains, which caused him injuries as he fled.

According to him, the identity or the motive of the attackers could not be ascertained because they could not be identified as Boko Haram members, neither were they Fulani herdsmen based on the mode of their operation.

There were, however, speculations that the assailants may have carried out the killings on an intended target.

Confirming the attack, the State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Abubakar Othman on Friday said the Command had launched an investigation towards tracking down the perpetrators.
