Adamawa Commissioner of Police, Mr Gazzali Mohammed, has confirmed the arrest of some suspects in connection with Sunday attack on four villages in Girei Local Government Area of Adamawa. Mohammed who did not give the number of those arrested, said 15 people, including a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) lost their lives in the attack.

“15 people were killed including, a DPO, while among those injured were some military personnel,” he said.

Mohammed debunked speculations that the incident was an attack by Boko Haram, adding that it was purely an attack by Fulani herdsmen as reprisal over the killing of a 10 year old Fulani boy.

The early morning Sunday attack affected Demsare, Koh, Ndikajam, Tabongo and Koh villages where the Principal of Government Day Secondary School Koh, Mr John Buba, was also killed.

Meanwhile, the state government has condemned the attack and called for calm. The Commissioner of Information, Mallam Ahmad Sajoh, said the government had summoned an emergency security meeting to discuss the issue. (NAN)
