Many people were feared dead on Thursday in a fresh attack by Boko Haram Islamists in Ghumbili community in the Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa.

The attack comes a few days after a similar incident in a neighbouring village in the Local Government, known as Mildu, where seven people were killed by the insurgents.

Confirming the attack, the Chairman of Madagali Local Government Council, Yusuf Muhammed, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the attack lasted from 11 p.m. on Wednesday to 3 a.m. on Thursday.

He said that the jihadists burnt no fewer than 60 houses and looted foodstuff.

“They looted foodstuff, killed livestock and burnt the village completely,” he stated.

Mr. Muhammed said that the exact number of dead and injured people had yet to be ascertained and that villagers who escaped the attack were currently taking refuge at Gulak, the headquarters of the council.

But the Spokesman of the Police Command in Adamawa, Othman Abubakar, who also confirmed the attack, said no life was lost.

He said, however, that houses were destroyed in the attack–the latest in a string of deadly blows on mainly soft targets in Nigeria’s troubled northeast.

Speaking on the development, the Executive Chairman of the Adamawa State Emergency Management Agency, Haruna Furo, said only one person was killed and that many houses were destroyed.

Boko Haram appears to have raised its onslaught in recent weeks in its eight-year bloody insurgency that has claimed thousands of lives.

        You are a damned lair. How can you say that your tribesmen are not threatening any body, is this your own version of al-Taqiyya? The kidnappers, robbers, and beheaders you are referring to are have a field day in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe; don’t be in denial, jihadist. Waring, this time around if you attempt to loot other people’s belongings you will perish, so behave yourselves.

  • emmanuel

    Osinbajo, this is day break. You want to hold on to power and has refused to do what is right. The same people who made ruling difficult for Jonathan are now back to the trenches.
    Lets see how you you survive the new Boko Haram onslaught devised against you.
    Vey soon, you would hand the treasury to them to buy arms and they will steal the treasury dry and sing your name.
    What goes around, comes around.
    What is Acting VP or coordinating Minister worthh if you would not leave any legacy , except that you are completing SW projects while the political interregnum last?
    It is clear that you are a regional champion and not worth anything to the larger Nigeria or mainstream Nigeria.

  • deri best

    The truth of the matter is that Bingo Buhari and the Apes in APC have all failed the Nation——-they are a disgrace to the country–a bunch of pathological liars———Yesterday they lied to us that Jonathan used money meant for the purchase of arms for our troops——for politics—-two years after being in d saddle in aso rock—- and the sale of 1.7m barrels of crude oil daily for two years—the highest level of oil production–in the history of Nigeria——boko haram Fulani fighters are yet to be defeated————————–by the jihadist government of the artful dodger Bingo Fulani Buhari—-Separation is the only way out———–with the Fulanis—————–asking every native Nigerian in the North— out of their adopted north from Mali –there is no more hope for the country———Only a thief wld want to venture into election in 2019 with another Fulani president again

    • George

      See yourself. We know you are not Igbo but as always using Igbo name because your tribe names are useless and discarded are everything up there.

      Your days are numbered.

  • CEO

    What is going on here, even with Buratai now relocated to the “war zone”, with the rest of the service chiefs, and his order to the troops to capture Shekeau in forty days? Are we sure that Boko Haram’s “technical” defeat narrative is real? This is even more worrying as Boko Haram has warned that they will capture Buratai. Where do we go from here, it is beginning to look in general like things are really falling apart.

  • Edimondo

    @disqus_ewv0Wa7gxQ:disqus,

    Where is the president of Nigeria, really?

    Muhamadu Buhari is behaving
    very badly by wanting to take Nigeria with him into the intensive care unit
    of London hospital and by retaining a right to keep drawing presidential
    salaries and allowances; including a fleet of aircraft, cars and, houses,
    whilst medically unable to perform the duties of the job to which those
    salaries and allowances are attached. For his gross immorality Buhari
    must go because he is a moral burden on federal republic of Nigeria for
    abandoning his duties to a deputy but retaining for himself the salaries,
    benefits, privileges and allowances of the actual post of president.

    • Farmer

      You product of baby factory , you get mouth to talk, go look for your father,

      • George

        Do you mean those at the IDP CAMPS in the north.

        YOU MONKEY like the rest morons why can’t you people just move into desert forever.

  • Fairgame

    Yorubas are the problem in Nigeria. Everybody wants to leave Nigeria but the Yorubas. Were Abubakars Shikau to contest as President of Nigeria a Yoruba Professor from Oxford will gladly be ready to be his running mate as Vice President…and he will be ready to explain his reason in some English grammar. How could an obvious failure like Buhari who has never achieved anything by himself or through his tactfulness, intelligence or dexterity get the support of the Yorubas in an election? Because they were engulfed with the fear of Boko haram and their bombings. Now with Fulani Herdsmen terrorizing the West, with more and more attacks as 2019 elections get close, the Yorubas begin to develop cold feet…and very soon they all line up behind any mumu the North presents however dumb or crude. At least no one can be worse than Buhari. It is their strategy. Kill, kill, suicide bombs here and there every other week, day and hours before the elections…and the Yorubas will vote for you and support one Nigeria. Shame on Lord Luggard. Shame on Britain BUT thank God for Sir Nnamdi Kanu.

    • emmanuel

      Before you said Jack Fayose; if what we hear is true, has ran to meet Atiku. Some months ago, he ran to Sherif who eventually created problem everywhere and told him off.
      What are the best options? Can anything come out of middle belt in the name of North? Can such options be deployed? Can Southern numbers work magic with middle belt if the push come to shove? Especially since they said they determine the fate on Nigeria from NW.
      Why not try these options first before the zest for VP lead to nowhere again?
      Fayose and Mimiko did the Sherif thing and Mimiko never recovered. Fayose is at it again.
      Please do not let all the praises go down the drain again. You have done well, please strategise!

    Boko Haram appears to have raised its onslaught in recent weeks in its eight-year bloody insurgency that has claimed thousands of lives.

    The Nigeria army and the security agencies are infected by the same ‘inability-to-think’ disease that affects many a Nigerian.

    You would think that by now, the top brass would have gathered the country’s military minds, thinkers and strategists and behind close door, spend days brainstorming to find a clear cut strategy for dealing with the boko haram problem, but so far, they keep using the same ‘insanity strategy’ which involves doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result..

    • Danfukilimi

      Break up Nigeria. Simple. This will solve the problem. The Laggards will always use terrorism to settle scores and retard Nigeria’s growth. Imagine if it were President Jonathan who was ill and in UK for say even 30 days. I am sure the whole of Lagos, Ibadan, Ondo, Ogun and Yorubas in the Diaspora will be protesting. But with Buhari all their pastors, fake and real are praying. Sycophants are plenty in this Nigeria.

        That is the Yorubas for you. They also believe they cannot survive without Nigeria.
        I have heard that from highly placed Yorubas before.
        They have all gone silent, until when Osinbade begin to get very bitter pills then they would talk

      “You would think that by now, the top brass would have gathered the country’s military minds, thinkers and strategists and behind close door, spend days brainstorming to find a clear cut strategy for dealing with the boko haram problem, ” – you mean like the USA has been doing in Afghanistan and Iraq since 20001 and 2003 respectively ?
      You have no idea what Boko Haram is all about , pity you .

        Yeah and you mean, the Taliban and Isis are operating in the USA? Try and compare like for like!

      • George

        Your tribe are the reason we Nigerians are so backward.

        Afghanistan and Irag isn’t America soil and not America country. The reason that wars still continue is because foreign powers are against USA.

        bOKO HARAM is a Nigeria and in Nigeria soil and don’t forget that was the major reason your monkeys and baboons used as excuse to removed GEJ, humble man with God’s backing after two years you are giving excuse that your morons types rejected under GEJ.

        God will seriously punish you and your types forever.

    When the military captures Buhari’s boys, or Boko Haram, Buhari will release them and compensate them with $millions so that they will have enough money to buy weapons to kill. I only pity the soldiers who are wasting their lives. How many Boko Haram has Buhari prosecuted?

  • George

    THEY SHALL NEVER HAVE PEACE AMEN.

    THEY TOOK our oil money to built their regions and gave us insults back as reward but behold My God Our God says they shall never have peace now and forever.

    They investigated only our own and let theirs goes free, they painted our own black and covers theirs with fine lines but My God says they will sock in their own bloods now and forever.

    Yuadua wife left with Billions of Dollars she is free but Patient is in several courts for no reason.

    Behold the Lord says I should tell them to wait for more evils as they wish for those that has been feeding them. Government of the Monkeys by the Hyenas and for the jackas.
