No fewer than eight people were killed in a gun attack by suspected members of the Islamist insurgents, Boko

Some residents of the affected village, who fled the area, said they were attacked by gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram members in the early hours of yesterday.
“They used explosives during the attack on the churches and many people lost their lives,” villagers recounted, as one of the residents, who identified himself as Heldia Apogu, said, “I cannot actually say how many people were kill but I saw about six dead bodies being evacuated.”
Another resident claimed that some houses were also
attacked by the gunmen who took some men as hostages.
“I saw some people crying, saying their relations had
been taken away as hostages by the gunmen,” the resident, who craved anonymity, said.
Efforts to get military and police authorities comment on the incident did not yield result at the time of filling this report but the Chairman of Madagali LG, James
Abawu Watharda, said eight people lost their lives
during the attack. Watharda said soldiers have sealed up the area and were hunting for the fleeing attackers, adding that “eight people were killed and two churches, and some houses, were set ablaze by the attackers, while all the villagers have fled.”
Madagali Local Government is bordering Gwoza Local Government of Borno State, which has experienced series of insurgent attacks since the declaration of the state of emergency.
