Suspected Boko Haram terrorists attacked two communities in the Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa state on Monday, August 14, 2017.

The terrorists attacked Nyibango and Muduvu communities in the late hours of Monday and staged an attack that resulted in the burning down of buildings, including worship centers, as well as animals.

According to a report by Channels TV, no human casualties were recorded during the attacks that lasted for two hours.

The Council Chairman of Madagali Local Government, Yusuf Mohammed, confirmed the attacks.

According to him, "At about 11pm, two of our villages Muduvu and Nyibango came under Boko Haram attack where houses, shops and worshiping places were completely burnt down.

"The way and manner our people are always under attack by Boko Haram insurgents is a serious issue of concern.

"We want the government to come to our aid by improving security as well as show sympathy by visiting the affected areas that are under attacks this two weeks."
