Boko Haram insurgents have again attacked and razed Muduvu and Nyibango villages in Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
The attack is coming few days after similar ones in Ghumbili and Mildu villages of the area of the council where several lives were lost.
The Chairman of Madagali Local Government Council, Mallam Yusuf Muhammed, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Tuesday in Yola that the latest attacks lasted from 11pm to 12 midnight on Monday.
Muhammed disclosed that the recent incident was the fifth attacks in the area by the Boko Haram within two weeks.
He called on the Federal Government to come to the rescue of the affected communities.
“Again, at about 11pm, two of our villages Muduvu and Nyibango came under Boko Haram attack where houses, shops and worship places were completely burnt down.
“The way and manner our people always come under attack of the Boko Haram insurgents is a serious issue of concern.
“We want the government to come to our aid by improving security as well as show sympathy by visiting the affected areas that had been under attacks within the last two weeks,” Muhammed said.
According to the chairman, the exact number of dead and injured people has yet to be ascertained.
He added that villagers who escaped the attack as well as returnees in communities had relocated to Gulak and Madagali town for fear of further attacks.
Muhammed said that the community that were attacked included Ghumbil and Bakin Dutse in Gulak District as well as Mildu and Muduvu in Sukur.
When contacted, the spokesperson for 28 Task Force Brigade, Mubi, Maj. Adetoye Fadare, said that he was on transit and out of town and therefore could not comment.
