1 Boko Haram Seizes Adamawa LG Office on 24th August 2014, 2:43 pm


No fewer than three persons were killed when members of the militant
Islamic group, Boko Haram, attacked Madagali Local Government Area of
Adamawa State.
SUNDAY PUNCH gathered the insurgents, who were heavily armed, invaded
the secretariat of the local government in the early hours of Saturday,
dislodging Nigerian soldiers who were guarding the premises and
surrounding areas.
The incident is coming hours after some members of the sect attacked the
Training Liman Kara Police College, near Gwoza community, Borno State.
More than 100 trainee police men were said to be still missing.
The insurgents were said to have arrived at the local government
headquarters led by armoured vehicles they had earlier seized from Nigerian
troops in the Gwoza attack earlier.
The Executive Director of Stefanos Foundation. Mr. Mark Lipdo, told our
correspondent that among the facilities burnt down by the insurgents were
the Government Secondary School, Madagali and the EYN Church Madagali.
He said the insurgents entered the town at about 7:25 am, bombarding the
town repeatedly with shoulder-bearing rocket-propelled grenades and anti-
aircraft mortar guns mounted on pickup vans.
The militants were also said to have promptly hoisted their flag and seized
the administrative headquarters of Madagali Local Government Area.
