Boko Haram strike again in Adamawa kills 5

The reinvigorated Military and law enforcement agents presence in the Northeast received another major blow Thursday as militants suspected to be Boko Haram killed at least five people in Kaya Village, Adamawa state.

A group of 10 militants stormed Kaya village at about 9:00 pm in the Madagali area late on Thursday and broke into two homes, killing four people.

Another resident was shot dead when he tried to come to the rescue of the victims, Maina Ularama, a former Madagali local government chairman said.

The attack, heard many kilometers away, seemed to underline the vulnerability of innocent villagers.

“Five people were shot dead last night by Boko Haram in Kaya village, three of them brothers living in the same house,” he said.

“They killed another person in a house close by. The fifth victim was killed when he rushed towards the area to rescue the victims after hearing their cries for help.”

President Buhari has said his administration needs $1billion to fight terror.
