Boko Haram terrorists have killed six people in Adamawa State, reports say.

The terrorists are said to have attacked Kuda Village in the Madagali Local Government Area of the state at about 9pm on Monday, February 15, 2016, according to Punch.

The insurgents reportedly burnt down 20 houses while an elderly woman was also burnt to ashes during the invasion.

The incident was confirmed by community leader, Abubakar Kanuri, who said the attackers came through Malakwaya, a section of the Sambisa Forest.

“…I know that one old woman was burnt to ashes because she couldn’t flee her home when the insurgents set her house ablaze,” Kanuri said.

“Today, they will invade our villages as rustlers, another day they stormed our villages in convoy of vehicles and some time they will use cattle to deceive us that they are normal herdsmen only to start killing people.

“We need help in our area. Many are beginning to return but with current security situation, they may not return to these areas. This crazy boys are still hiding in caves inside Sambisa Forest,” he added.

Meanwhile, Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed has said that the recent attacks by the sect are not a sign of its resurgence.
