3 killed in fresh Adamawa attack by suspected herdsmen

At least three people have been confirmed dead after gunmen struck in an early Sunday morning raid on Kikon Village of Numan Local Government Area in Adamawa State.

The attackers, as gathered suspected to be herdsmen rode into the village on motorbikes setting houses and food barns on fire. They also reportedly carted away cattle belonging to the farmers.

According to eyewitness accounts , the invaders stormed the village around 2:00 a.m. while the villagers were still sleeping, leaving them running into the bush for safety.

This attack is the latest, following raids by herdsmen on Mbang and Baga villages of Numan Local Government Area in the last two weeks.

Recently, herdsmen have also launched attacks on farming communities in Benue state in the North Central, killing several people.
