Gunmen Attack Another Adamawa Community, Set Houses Ablaze


Mbemun, a fishing community in Lamurde local government area of Adamawa State has been attacked by gunmen, residents said.

This comes a day after an ethnic violence left at least six people dead in Tigno community in the same local government.

Armed men invaded Mbemun on Saturday and set many homes on fire, Bandrus James told the press.

However, he said he cannot confirm if there were casualties.

The police spokesman in Adamawa Suleiman Nguroje later said anti-riot police have been drafted to the area.

“As I am talking to you this afternoon, the CP (Commissioner of Police) and the state governor and other service chiefs in the state are heading to the affected areas.

“So, I don’t have full details of the attack,” he said.
