Many persons were feared killed following a deadly attack by suspected herdsmen on five communities in Numan and Demsa Local Government Areas of Adamawa State.

The attackers also invaded Lau Local Government Area of neighbouring Taraba State destroying properties.

Residents said their communities were invaded by the gunmen on motorcycles, shooting sporadically into the air.

The member representing Numan in the Adamawa State House of Assembly, Sodom Tayedi confirmed that the attack started from 4:00 p.m. on Sunday and lasted late into the night.

Tayedi said most people were caught unawares being a market day in one of the communities.

The herdsmen-farmers crisis has claimed hundreds of lives since the beginning of the year while President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has come under heavy criticism for allegedly tackling the issue with kid’s gloves.
