Boko Haram insurgents attacked three communities in Madagali Local
Government Area of Adamawa State Monday night, dislodging policemen on
routine duty and wreaking havoc on the town, The Nation has reported.
 
A security officer who spoke on the incident on condition of
anonymity Tuesday morning said the insurgents killed three people,
destroyed 20 shops and three cars and carted away valuable items.
 
The anonymous security officer named the communities affected as Shuwa, Kirshingari and Shuari.
 
This latest attack confirms fears over the security situation in
Madagali, the only local government area in Adamawa State where the
Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had earlier said voting
would take place in only three communities, including Shuwa.
 
Residents said the insurgents who arrived in several vehicles about
7pm Monday, took over Madagali until soldiers from Gulak and Michika
intervened to engage the insurgents in a battle that lasted for about
two hours.
 
The Commander of 28 Task Force Battalion in Mubi, Lt Col Haruna, said the insurgents had been repelled.
 
The Police Public Relations Officer in Adamawa State, DSP Othman
Abubakar, assured that a combined team of security personnel had brought
the situation under control.
 
Madagali is one of the seven LGAs in Adamawa State that Boko Haram
once seized. The situation remained so bad in the area just before
elections in 2015 that the elections did not hold there and the
neighbouring Michika LGA.
