A herdsmen attack on Kikon at midnight has left four people feared dead.
The herdsmen attacked the Numan community at around 1am on Sunday, killing 2 men and 2 women and setting the entire village on fire.
SP Othman Abubakar, the Adamawa state Police Public Relations Officer verified the attack and confirmed the 4 killed.
Eyewitnesses report that the herdsmen used motorbikes and stole food items and livestock.
Dr John Gamsa, a community leader told Punch, “The said deployment of five units of mobile police to the area has not helped residents.
The army platoon drafted to this area are just sitting and watching while the herdsmen have their fill of blood
Since the IG deployed his men, the attacks have only increased. The Federal Government is not sincere enough in handling the issue, as it has not done anything to stop the attack.”
This is the eighth such attack in Numan between December 2017 and January 2018, with over 100 dead.
