A breakout faction of Boko Haram, the Islamic State in West African Province (ISWAP) has sent a threat letter to some communities in Adamawa State.
Naija News reports that the terrorists warned the communities about an impending attack during the Christmas period.
It was gathered that the insurgents dropped the letters in public places around communities.
A resident of Michika, Shehu Kambile told Sahara Reporters that “yes, threat letters were dropped in Bazza and Michika towns. The terrorists have warned of an impending attack on our communities during Christmas festivities.
“As it is, our people have been terrified because the terrorists have earned a reputation of carrying out their threat anytime they make one. Should that threat happen, it would be more devastating because of the current hardship occasioned by the prevailing bad economy in the country.
“We’re praying and hoping the military and other operatives would deploy intelligence so as to nip it in bud.”
When contacted, Brigade Commander, 23 Brigade Yola, Aminu Garba, stated that Bazza and Michika towns are not under his jurisdiction.
He said: “Please contact Commander 28 Brigade Chibok. They are not under my Brigade. I’m not aware. The issue of threat letters has now become a routine, let them come and see if they will go back.”
