One person has been reported killed following an attack by suspected herdsmen in Bilachi, a community in Fufore Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

The attack was said to have occurred at about 7:00 pm on Thursday as the assailants reportedly set the village ablaze, leaving the people to scamper to safety.

Channels Television gathered that the person killed was the younger brother of the village chief while one other person sustained injury from a machete cut on his left hand and his back.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Othman Abubakar, has confirmed the incidence to our correspondent in Yola, the state capital.

Abubakar, however, said he is yet to get more updates on the attack. (Channels TV)
