Dozens Of Women Taken Captive As Herdsmen Raid Villages In Numan - Daily Trust by BeeBeeOoh(m): 10:27am On Sep 14
Dozens of women are currently being held by suspected Fulani herdsmen after a raid on Gwon, Bolki and Nzumosu communities in Numan local government area of Adamawa State.

Numan communities have being under a total siege by suspected herdsmen since January this year, the repeated attacks that have been dismissed as mere farmer/herder clashes by the authorities.

Confirming the recent attacks, the member representing Numan constituency at the state House of Assembly, Mrs. Sodom Tayedi told newsmen that the marauding herdsmen were advancing towards other neighboring communities.

She further explained that the exact casualties cannot be ascertained as locals scampered to safety in the bush.

Hon. Tayedi, lamented that the attackers are mobilizing from Abbare which has large contingent of soldiers.

“There are soldiers in Abbare, yet these attackers will always mobilise from that Abbare”, she submitted.

She said further; “there is never a time they’ll attack and I never called security agents as member representing the constituency.

“I just called the Brigade Commander again and he assured me that troops are on their way to the area”, she reluctantly said.

The member also noted that even if the soldiers get there they may not be able to reach the affected villages due flooding of the area now.

Police could not confirm the attack as Police Spokesman, Habibu Musa could not answer phone calls up to the time of going to press.

Even as there is freedom of speech, there should be grave consequences for spreading fake news. This news is fake.

Channels TV reported similar news from this community sometime in May this year. https://www.channelstv.com/2018/05/07/residents-blame-military-for-attack-on-adamawa-communities/

I have the feeling this blogger went to dig up the news, tweak it to suit his purpose in order to heat up the polity more. I have searched online to see if credible news media carries this news, but none apart from dailytrust.

It's a pity how abysmal some of us can descend for our selfish purpose

Nobody can argue at this time that this is no longer such thing as mere herdsmen/farmers clashes...

But just when would all these killings in our nation end?...

The wicked, heartless, and terrorists gruesomely killing poor innocent fellow men in their own homes. I bleed in spirit when I see these happening... wishing i could actively do more to help alongside praying for the nation, and advocating for peace to reign.

God help us!...

Hundreds displaced in Adamawa as Fulani herdsmen attack two communities

Rampaging Fulani herdsmen have attacked and razed down two densely populated settlements – Suwa and Burukutu – in Lamurde local government area of Adamawa State.

Reports from our reporter in Yola, the state capital, indicate that the attacks were carried out by well-armed Fulani herdsmen, who struck at 4a.m. on Sunday and continued to wreck havoc till 8 a.m., leaving the communities in rubbles.

Although details of the incident are still sketchy and casualty figure could not be ascertained yet, a large number of people were reportedly killed while the settlements were completely razed down, residents lucky to escape the attacks told PREMIUM TIMES.

The Adamawa State Police Commissioner, Mark Adamu Idokwo,  has visited the affected community, Nemuel Yoila, the police spokesperson said, promising to provide details of the incidence two hours after our correspondent contacted him. He is yet to revert as at the time of this report.

Witnesses say the Fulani herdsmen, numbering over 500 and believedto be on a revenge mission,suddenly descended on the communities and begun to attack residents.

The ruler of Kwah and Gyakan community, who preferred anonymity, said his people were now living in fear, following the attacks on neighbouring Burukutu and Suwa.

He said although casualty figures could not yet be ascertained, reports reaching him indicated several people lost their lives in the attacks.

Hundreds of people have been dislocated from the two communities, renowned as the rice cultivating settlement of the state. 

Unconfirmed reports say one mobile police officer was also killed when security agencies tried to repel the Fulani herdsmen.

Rumours had initially filtered through the town that the Fulani herdsmen were planning a reprisal to avenge the attacks on their kith and kin earlier in the year following an orgy of violence that rocked Jimeta, Mubi and Lamurde, with some Fulani herdsmen alleging molestation by their host communities. 

However, a government committee set up to look into the remote causes of the violence only recently submitted its report, saying properties worth billions of naira were destroyed in the attacks.

The report urged the government to set up peace and reconciliation committees in the local councils to forestall future occurrences and douse inter-ethnic tension in the areas.
