After Borno and Yobe, Boko Haram Overruns Another Town in Adamawa
The North-East region has continued to face the heavy onslaught on the Boko Haram sect.
From one town to the other in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa State, the continues to rain its havoc on the people.
Earlier today (Saturday), Abusidiqu reported that the Boko Haram insurgents’ have taken over another village in Borno. That is after the Gwoza and Damboa fell to the terrorist, though the Nigerian Army later recaptured Damboa leaving Gwoza under their control. The report of the sect taken over Pulka village in Borno state had yet to settle when they struck Madagali in Adamawa State.
According to SaharaReporters, heavily armed insurgents belonging to the sect, stormed the secretariat of Madagali local government area in Adamawa State in the early hours of Saturday.
The insurgents dislodged Nigerian soldiers who were guarding the facility and surrounding areas, the report said.
It added that hundreds of the militants arrived at the local government headquarters led by armored vehicles they had earlier seized from Nigerian troops in Gwoza, Borno State. The source added that the Islamist fighters were also armed with shoulder-fired rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) and anti-aircraft mortar guns mounted on pickup vans. They reportedly had it easy overwhelming Nigerian soldiers in the area who retreated quickly in the face of the militants’ heavy gunfire.
The militants promptly hoisted their flag and seized the administrative headquarters of Madagali local government area.
The local government area now joins a list of towns in Nigeria’s violence-plagued northeast that are under the control of the extremist militants who have declared Western education as the source of moral decadence and corruption in Nigeria. The towns captured by Boko Haram fighters include Gwoza in Borno State and Buni Yadi in Yobe State.
Meanwhile, more than 100 trainee police officers remain missing days after Boko Haram fighters sacked the Mobile Police Training Academy in Gwoza last Wednesday.
