Adamawa Govt Confirms Seven Died, 5,000 Displaced In Boko Haram Attack

The Adamawa State Government has confirmed that seven persons were killed while about 5,000 others were displaced in Friday’s attack by Boko Haram insurgents in Kwapre in the Hong Local Government Area of the state.

This was disclosed by the Adamawa State Emergency Management Agency (ADSEMA) on Sunday, through its Executive Secretary, Dr Mohammed Sulaiman, who said the attack on the village affected neighbouring communities where most of the displaced persons had taken up temporary residence.

He said further that the insurgents stormed Kwapre in nine vehicles, surrounded the village and killed seven people.

“During the attack, 50 houses, worship centres, markets and schools were burnt. Many people, including women, girls and men, were kidnapped by the attackers,” he said, adding that about eight persons among those kidnapped have escaped.
