Two people were killed when Boko Haram fighters attacked a remote village in the latest attack in Adamawa state.
According to a local elder, the attack happened in Wanu village, some three kilometres (just under two miles) from the town of Gulak, at about 7:30 p.m., on Wednesday.
“They killed two people and injured one other. They went about burning homes, crops and livestock,” said Maina Ularamu, a former head of the Madagali Local Government area.
Boko Haram has repeatedly targeted Madagali and the surrounding area in recent weeks as part of an increase in activity in Adamawa state. It was declared “cleared” of the jihadists, in 2014, but there have still been raids and suicide attacks in the far north of the state, where it borders neighbouring Borno.
