Many people are feared dead and many others wounded as Fulani herdsmen in the early hours of Sunday unleashed terror on three communities in Jire Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

Though details are still sketchy as time of filling this story, the marauding herdsmen were were said to have attacked Ko, Gereng and Ndikajam communities at about 3.30 am shooting sporadically.
Executive Director of Stefanos Foundation, Mr. Mark Lipdo, quoting some survivors, said that currently many of them have deserted their villages while the herdsmen held sway.

Lipdo said, “Information says early morning today, Fulani terrorists unleashed violence on three communities in Jire local government area of Adamawa State. Survivors said they burnt down houses in Ko, Gereng and Ndikajam and were shooting sporadically. It is still difficult to establish the casualties as people are currently running for their lives.”

Reports monitored on national television said the indigenes of the communities had foreknowledge of the attack and passed the information on the police, but failed to provide adequate security to the communities.
