No fewer than 30 people are feared dead after a group of armed herdsmen, numbering over 400, attacked and burnt down five villages, Bolki, Bang, Nzumoso, Boki and Gon, in Numan and Lamurde local government areas of Adamawa State on Wednesday night.
According to the Sun, the herdsmen rode on motorcycles and in pick-up vans and began killing and burning down houses in the villages. A resident who escaped unhurt, accused the military of failing to engage the herdsmen.
“The soldiers retreated into town while the herdsmen spilled blood all over the place,” the source said
This incident comes after Tuesday May 1st suicide attack on Mubi town that left over 80 people dead.
