Many Feared Dead, Houses Razed As Gunmen Attack Adamawa Villages

Three communities in Numan Local government area of Adamawa State, Bolki, Bang and Gon have been attacked by armed bandits suspected to be herdsmen.

Naija News also gathered  that many houses were razed down in the attack.

Local residents who spoke from Bang through a phone call said the entire village has been razed down. The armed bandits were said to have stormed the village in large numbers in the early hours of Wednesday unleashing mayhem on unsuspecting villagers.

Chairman of Numan Local Government Area, Arnold Jibla who also spoke with Channels Television said that the number of casualties cannot be accounted for yet because the attack was still ongoing.

Bang village is a border community between Adamawa and Taraba States.

The attack comes barely two days after a twin bomb attack on a mosque and market in Mubi town of Adamawa state resulted in the death of up to sixty people.
