Abubakar-ShekauAnother strategic town in Adamawa South senatorial zone, Michika, the headquarters of Michika LGA, has been taken over by Boko Haram insurgents as they continue to advance in their control of towns and villages in Adamawa State.

The seizure of Michika came less than 48 hours after Gulak, the hometown of the incumbent acting governor, Umaru Ahmadu Fintiri, was overrun by the insurgents.

Residents say that the insurgents have dislodged all the military checkpoints and chased out few Nigerian troops stationed there after which they hoisted their flag in the township.

Some of the residents, who are fleeing the town, said efforts by the Nigerian Air Force to dislodge the insurgents proved futile as the jets deployed to attack them just hovered around the town.

Military authorities were said to have deployed more troops and reinforced the armoury at Marraba Mubi to prevent the insurgents from capturing Mubi, another strategic town located less than 30km from Michika.

When contacted, the acting governor’s spokesman, who hails from the area, Mr Solomon Kumanagar, confirmed that several people were feared killed as the terrorists took control of Gulak and other border towns in Madagali and Michika LGAs of the state.

Kumangar said that already, Michika and other surrounding villages and towns had then been overrun by the insurgents, just as the effects of the insurgency such as displacement of whole villages and towns, had created multitudes of internally displaced persons (IDPs) whose management and welfare the government was left to cater for.
