3 killed in Adamawa by gunmen


Gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram have killed three persons and destroyed properties in a community in Adamawa State.

A source said that a group of armed men riding on motorcycles attacked in the early hours of Monday, firing guns sporadically as they looted drugs and foodstuff shops in Dabna community in Hong Local Government Area.

The source explained that civilians died in the attack, adding that one of the attackers lost his life during an exchange of fire with some vigilantes but his corpse was taken away by members of his gang.

Sulaiman Nguroje, Adamawa State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, in a statement condemned the attack and assured that a team of policemen had been dispatched to the area to ensure that the attackers are apprehended and to restore normalcy in the area.

He said: “The CP warns that attacks on innocent souls would no longer be tolerated under whatsoever guise as the command holds the lives of citizens sacrosanct and such unwarranted attitude would be strictly treated in accordance with extant laws.”
