Two killed, soldiers shot as herdsmen attack Adamawa communities



Suspected cattle rustlers have killed two persons during an early morning attack on Shaforo and Kudumti communities of Numan Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

No fewer than six persons were wounded, including military personnel who resisted the herders in a gunfight.

The state Police Command, through its spokesman, DSP Suleiman Nguroje, confirmed the attack, giving the identity of the attackers as cattle rustlers.




“One of the attackers was killed in the crossfire with security operatives and his corpse has been deposited at the Numan mortuary.

“The CP has dispatched additional operatives to join other security agencies to comb the bushes in the area and arrest the fleeing cattle rustlers,” he said.
