Three people have been confirmed dead after gunmen struck in an early Sunday morning raid on Kikon Village of Numan Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
The attackers suspected to be herdsmen rode into the village on motorbikes setting houses and food barns on fire. They also reportedly carted away cattle belonging to the farmers.
Eyewitnesses told Channels Television that the invaders stormed the village at about 2:00 a.m. while the villagers were still sleeping, leaving them scampering into the bush for safety.
