Boko Haram kills seven in northeastern Nigeria
Boko Haram Takfiri militants have killed seven people in northeastern Nigeria.
Local official sources said on Tuesday the attack was carried out on Sunday evening in the town of Madagali, Adamawa State.
“They killed seven people and burnt 10 houses,” said Maina Ularamu, a former official with the Madagali local government.
“We are calling on the security agencies … to flush out the insurgents because they use the bush as their operational base from where they attack Madagali and its environs.”
Adamawa police spokesman Abubakar Othman confirmed Ularamu’s statement and said two people were also injured in the attack.
