[Local hunters, group of vigilante in Adamawa]
*Kill over 100 members *Arrest 17*
Local hunters and group of vigilante in Madagali area of Adamawa state have arrested 17 members
of Boko Haram and killed over a hundred of them.
The local who moped up areas of Madagali, Michika and Mubi hide out of the insurgents and rescued 280 women and children in the villages of Mandakam and chakawa in Madagali LGA.
Sources revealed that three members of the local hunters sustained various degrees of injuries as a result of exchange of gunshots with the insurgents, who are presently receiving treatment in Madagali general Hospital.
It could be recalled that 200 hundred able Youths were recruited and were given a special training to face the dreaded group last two weeks by the Member representing Madagali state House of Assembly, Hon Emmanuel Tsamdu.
The Adamawa police command spokesperson, Othman Abubakar said the information is yet to reach his table after many effort to put a call through the Divisional police officer in Madagali to authenticate the information failed.
But the spokesperson to Emmanuel Tsamdu, Prince S. Zuberu said there is a remarkable success in using the local hunters in the area as the lawmaker representing Madagali constituency has travelled out of the country for official assignment.
“Last two weeks three members of Boko Haram were arrested and today 17 of them were killed ,over 100 of them were arrested and 280 women and children were rescued from the shackles of Boko Haram.
“You will agree with me it is success henceforth,” Prince said.
