6 killed, many injured as Boko Haram insurgents invade Adamawa

Boko Haram

Hell was let loose in Yola, the Adamawa State Capital Thursday night as suspected Boko Haram insurgents unleashed terror in the state capital.

During the attack which lasted several hours, at least six people were reported killed, while many others sustained injuries.

According to an eyewitness, the suspected insurgents in their large number stormed the popular Kasuwar Gwari market along Mubi Bye Pass, fingered their victims and shot them at close range.

The eyewitness added that serious stampede ensued in the area and spread to other parts of the state capital like wild fire.

In the ensuing confusion, several people sustained injuries as people ran for their lives following sporadic shooting.

The military enforcing the state of emergency in the state have launched a man haunt for the fleeing suspected Boko Haram members.

The man haunt has led to the closure of all roads leading to and from the state capital thereby creating long queues along the major roads.
