Boko Haram insurgents on Saturday night raided Kuda-kaya village in Madagali, Adamawa State to steal food and medical supplies, residents and officials said.
The sources said scores of fighters stormed the village, two kilometres from Gulak, the administrative headquarters of Madagali, for the attack.
“They came in numbers and just started shooting sporadically into the air with their guns; and there was pandemonium as people started fleeing for their lives,” a fleeing resident said.
“Our local hunters engaged them in a fierce battle. Presently we are hiding somewhere in a nearby village,’’ the resident, who sought anonymity for security reasons, stated.
