At least fiver persons have died after suspected Ambazonia fighters from Cameroon stormed Manga village in Takum Local Government Area of Taraba State.

According to Vanguard, a traditional ruler was also killed in the attack on Tuesday.

Confirming this development to Vanguard via telephone, Chairman of the LGA, Shiban Tikari, said some others were still missing after the invasion.

He said: “Yes, Manga village in Shigom ward of Takum Local Government Area was attacked. A local chief was killed alongside four others. When the invasion started, many people fled.

 

“Some fell into the river, while others climbed the mountains to save themselves from being killed.

 

“As I speak with you now, we can confirm only five death because those bodies have been recovered. But people are adding those still missing to the number of casualties, that is why you will hear some say 9 or 11 were killed.

 

“The soldiers, police and other security operatives have also been deployed to the village. We are hoping that those that fled would return because we are still on the look out.”

 

However, younger brother to the slain monarch, Joseph Manga, who is an aide to Taraba State governor, Darius Ishaku, said about 11 persons were killed.

According to him, the Ambazonia fighters attacked some villages in Camerooon before crossing to the border community in Taraba State.
