Boko Haram insurgents have raided Nyibango and Muduvu villages in an attack in Madagali Local Government Area of North East Adamawa state.
The latest attacks were coming after similar ones few days ago in Mildu and Ghumbili villages of the area where several lives were lost.
Mr Yusuf Mohammed, the chairman of Madagali Local Government Council who confirmed the latest attacks said they occurred midnight Monday lasting from 11 pm to 1 am.
“I am yet to get details of casualty but I learnt that houses and places of worship were razed down,” Mohammed told newsmen in Yola.
He said that villagers that escaped were now taking refuge in Madagali and Gulak towns.
The council boss who said that the latest attacks brought to five the number of attacks in the area within two weeks called for a more proactive measure by the military deployed to the area.
He also lamented on what he described as the lack of concern by Federal Government over the frequent attacks and displacement of villages in the area by the insurgents, adding that so far no federal government delegation or message of condolence was sent to the people over the incidents.
