Suspected members of Boko Haram sect have yet again, struck the beleaguered north eastern region of Nigeria, leaving several dead and houses razed.
No fewer than six persons were killed and 20 houses razed down in Kuda village of Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State, by the violent group.
It was gathered that the extremists stormed the village at 9pm on Monday and shot at fleeing villagers, thus killing five persons and injuring several others.
Confirming the incident, the head of Krichinga, Abubakar Kanuri said the over 30 armed insurgents came through a section of the Sambisa Forest called Malakwaya.
He said, “I know that one old woman was burnt to ashes because she couldn’t flee her home when the insurgents set her house ablaze.”
“Today, they will invade our villages as rustlers, another day they stormed our villages in convoy of vehicles and some time they will use cattle to deceive us that they are normal herdsmen only to start killing people.
“We need help in our area. Many are beginning to return but with current security situation, they may not return to these areas.
“These crazy boys are still hiding in caves inside Sambisa Forest,” he added.
