Gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram fighters are currently attacking Garkida town in Gombi local government area of Adamawa State, according to reports from the area.
A report the online edition of Daily Trust this Thursday night, December 24, 2020, quoted its correspondent as saying that the insurgents thronged the town through the main road in the late afternoon, forcing residents to flee to the surrounding mountains.
“I saw them moving in to the town in five trucks and then heard sounds of gun shots and people running to the mountains,” a fleeing resident was quoted as saying.
Details of the attacks were sketchy as at the time of this report, and there was no official statement to that effect either.
