The deadly terrorist group, Boko Haram has reportedly invaded one of the towns in Adamawa State, the home state of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party in the forthcoming coming election.
Report from the North East says the suspected members of the killer organisation invaded a community in Michika local government area of the state Monday, reported TheCable.
It was gathered that the insurgents stormed the town late in the night, leading to total panic in the entire community. Residents reportedly fled into the bush and nearby mountains to avoid being caught in the crossfire.
The sect members had first struck at Shuwa village in Madaglai local government area of the state around 6:45 pm.
Police PRO in the state is yet to confirm the incident, while Sani Usman, spokesman of the Nigerian army hasn’t reacted to the attack at the time of compiling this report.
Adamawa State has produced notable military men, successful businessmen and women, and prominent politicians.
Some of them include Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, PDP aspirant in the February 16 Presidential Election, Buba Marwa among others.
Marwa, a former military administrator of Lagos state, is from Michika, where the attack took place
It would be recalled that Gen. Marwa (rtd) led more than 10 Major Generals, eight Air Vice Marshals, two Rear Admirals, 11 Brigadier-Generals, nine Air Commodores, eight Commodores and 17 former military administrators — all retired, to Aso Rock to endorse President Muhammadu Buhari.
Marwa is the current head of the presidential advisory committee on the elimination of drug abuse in the country.
The aim of the retired generals is to ensure that the reelection bid of Buhari comes to fruition.
PDP hasn’t reacted to the attack, recalled that Atiku has as part of his Atiku Plan how he plans to end the insurgency in the North East.
Thousands of people have been rendered homeless and lives were lost, while properties worth billions of Naira have been lost since insurgency started in the North East almost a decade ago.
