Soldiers on Tuesday repelled an early morning attack by fleeing Boko Haram insurgent on Dar village in Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa.

Chairman of Madagali Local Government, Yusuf Mohammed, said the attack was contained by the prompt response of security operatives in the areas.

He lauded the efforts of security agencies and local vigilantes, and urged for more support to secure the area.

Also confirming the development, spokesman of 28 Task-Force Battalion, Mubi, Akintoye Badare, said the attack was successfully repelled with no casualty on the military side.

“All I can confirm to you now is that there was attack on Dar village but we successfully repelled it; no casualty on our side,” Mr. Badare, a Major, said.

He said the situation in the area had since normalised while soldiers remain on full alert.

A twin blast on December 9, 2016 at the Madagali market resulted in the death of many people. (NAN)
