Fulani militants attacked four communities of ethnic minority Christians in Adamawa State.
Report says more than 25 persons were killed yesterday 13/9/18 in what appeared to be a coordinated attack by Fulani militants on four communities of Numan Local Government Area.
According to an eye witness who spoke to Stefanos Foundation, the attackers stormed the communities at about 3 o’clock in the afternoon and started shooting indiscriminately, killing two men instantly.
“Myself and my children were on our way out when we heard gunshot sounds. We immediately ran away. Unfortunately, this morning I received news that the Fulanis chased our people and killed many. Those who tried to run through the river were shot and this morning, over 25 bodies were recovered from the river. We’re not sure how many more are yet to be discovered.
I was told that the Fulani militants burnt down all our houses and took some women and children with them. We no longer have a place to call home. Right now we’re helpless.”
The communities affected in the attack are Gon, Bolki, Nzomuso and Yanga.
