Boko HaramAt least twenty persons were killed and several others injured in Kuda village, Madagali local government area of Adamawa State when suspected Boko Haram insurgents opened fire on them.
Witnesses said the suspected insurgents walked into the village from the direction of Sambisa Forest around 9pm on Thursday and opened fire on the villagers, who were gathered at a square to mourn the 40th day since the demise of some tribesmen.
They added that the gunmen fired at the crowd, killing 20 people before attacking several houses where they executed men and carted away foodstuff.
A former Chairman of Madagali LGA, Maina Ularamu, who confirmed the attack, called for the deployment of soldiers to villages connecting Sambisa Forest so that pockets of attacks by remnants of the insurgents, who he said are hunger-stricken and hiding in the area, could be effectively checkmated.
Mr. Ularamu, however, commended the Nigerian military for their impressive performance in the war against insurgency.
Also confirming the attack, the Adamawa Police Command spokesman, DSP Othman Abubakar, said 18 villagers died in the attack.
