Chadian soldiers hold weapons in the recently retaken town of DamasakSuspected Boko Haram sect members have slaughtered no fewer than 10 people in Kwamda- Kobla village in northern parts of Adamawa State.

Chairman of Madagali Local Government Area in Adamawa State, Maina Ularamu, while confirming the incident to newsmen, noted that the gunmen raided several villages in the area during the weekend.

According to him, the attackers did not shoot, but beheaded their victims.

He said members of vigilante groups had gone after the attackers before they escaped to their hide-outs in the surrounding villages.

His words, “The village is five kilometres from Gulak town, but there is no security presence there as soldiers are deployed in Madagali town and Gulak only. When the vigilante men went after the militants, they escaped,” he said.

This development, he said, has forced a number of residents who are taking refuge in Yola, the state capital, to stay back because the government had not assured them of safety of their lives and property.
