Youths and vigilance group members in Michika and Madagali local government areas of Adamawa State on Tuesday night killed about 80 Boko Haram insurgents fleeing the areas. The insurgents, who had been wreaking havoc on some boundary communities in Adamawa and Borno states, were said to have run into the bush after running out of arms and ammunition.
It was gathered that normalcy had returned to the the LGAs with troops stationed in strategic places. A resident of Michika, Vandi Joseph, told journalists on Wednesday in Yola, that the insurgents were overpowered by youths and vigilantes who shot them to death.
He said, “As I am speaking to you, our youths and vigilance group members ambushed and killed over 80 insurgents who escaped from soldiers and hid themselves in the bush. Our youths and vigilantes saw them and killed them.”
