Boko Haram terrorists were again on a killing spree in Garkida Town in Adamawa State yesterday, according to a report by an online news portal, Sahara- Reporters.
The report quoting multiple sources from the town, who managed to escape to nearby bushes, confirmed the incident. One of the sources, Andrawus Tarfa, told SaharaReporters that the town was covered with thick black smoke.
He said: “Boko Haram terrorists have invaded our town, all we hear is rattling gunfire, just as thick bellowing smoke has covered the sky.” It is not clear what damage the attack may have caused to human life and property, as the raid was still ongoing at the time of going to press.
Spokesperson for the 23 Brigade of Nigeria Army in Yola, the state capital, could not confirm the attack to SaharaReporters, as he was said to be ignorant of the incident.
