At-least 15 persons has lost their life and many others injured after suspected herdsmen launched a fresh attack on three communities in Adamawa State.

Speaking about the sad incident, survivors revealed their village of Bolon in Drmsa Local Government Area and neighbouring Bolki and Bujum villages within Numan Local Government Area were overrun on Wednesday night by heavily-armed men suspected to be Fulani herdsmen.

The assailants were said to have pounced on Bolon at about 10pm, shooting sporadically and torching more than 10 thatched houses, forcing surviving residents to flee for their lives. Robinson Filgona, Village Head of Bolon said:

“At about 10 pm, some Fulani militants descended on our community, heavily armed and started shooting indiscriminately. Over 100 households in my community are now homeless because their houses have been burnt down. Our foodstuffs have also been burnt to ashes just like that; if you go round the village, you will see several of our houses are still on fire. My people need help, their food have been burnt and there is nothing to fall back to.”

Kwamoti Laori, lawmaker-elect for Numan/Demsa/Lamurde Federal Constituency, has lamented the frequent attacks and called on the authorities to restore security to the area.

In the same vein, Kate Mamuno, lawmaker-Elect for Demsa Sate Constituency, visited the community and faulted the lack of prompt response from security
