Adamawa Arms 500 Hunters, Others To Battle Insurgency

Filed in News by on November 17, 2017

The Adamawa State government has empowered 500 hunters and vigilance group members in Madagali Local Government Area to fight insurgency.

Chairman of Madagali council Yusuf Mohammed spoke in an interview with reporters yesterday. Mohammed said the hunters, who know the terrain, are being supported with cartridges and feeding allowances to sustain their contribution in the fight.

According to him, there were about six attacks in the last one week, with the latest on Wednesday in Sabon Gari village.

Mohammed lauded efforts of security agents and local hunters in repelling the attacks.

He called on the Federal Government and the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, to deploy more military personnel in the area, which he said was experiencing growing attacks due to its closeness to Sambisa forest.

“Our area is under siege, our people now live in fear; we can’t go to the farm or travel with ease.

“I plead for more deployment of military and other security agents,” Mohammed said.

The government has confirmed Wednesday’s attack in Sabon-Gari in Madagali council.

Commissioner for Information and Strategy Ahmad Sajoh said two of the insurgents were killed.
