Residents of Garkida, in Gombi Local Government Area of Adamawa State are reporting an ongoing heavy gunfire in the town.
“We are right now locked up in our houses and all we can hear is heavy gunfire which appears to come from all directions,” a resident, who is too shaken to provide his name, told PREMIUM TIMES.
Garkida is under Gombi Local Government Area. A German expatriate, Nirtsch Ernhard, was abducted in front of his house there about three weeks ago.
It is also a stone’s throw from Agwan Alade, where armed men suspected to be members of the Boko Haram sect waylaid the convoy of three First Class emirs from Borno state and shot dead the emir of Gwoza.
