Suspected members of the Boko Haram on Monday night attacked Bakin Dutse village as they advanced to Gulak administrative headquarters of Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

The attack, which was ongoing at the time of this report, was confirmed by government officials and security sources.

Fleeing residents said the attack commenced at about 7:35 p.m. as the insurgents stormed the village and opened fire on residents.

The casualty from the attack cannot be ascertained yet.

The Adamawa State governor confirmed the attack in a brief telephone interview.

“More soldiers have been swiftly deployed to Gulak and other areas to repel the attack. So I am calling on the fleeing residents to remain calm and be prayerful.

“Security operatives are on the top of the situation,” he said.

The attacks occur despite the efforts of the military to defeat the Boko Haram whose insurgency has caused about 100,000 deaths since 2009.

    Not until buhari and his northern iskamic cohorts confess to their involvement in the creation and support to boko haram, they will know no peace. Not until he explains his involvement in mainagate, 25 billion dollar NNPC contracts scandal etc, he will also not have rest. God has exposed and will continue to expose his hypocrisy and duplicity in deceiving gullible Nigerians that he is fighting corruption by his selective persecution.

    When a state makes lying the official governance tool,this is part of result that you get.
    Why lying that you have won an ongoing fight when your opponent is still strong and still very active.
    No battle can be won by lying against the truth .
    This government must wake up,throw away lies and sincerely focus on the real issues affecting Nigeria and address them holistically.
