Boko Haram Attacks Michika In Adamawa
Boko Haram fighters attacked Michika, a town in Adamawa state, on Thursday evening.
A soldier, who confirmed the attack, told TheCable that he got a call around 6pm that the insurgents were already in the town.
“Michika is under attack right now. Our men are on their way to repel,” the soldier told TheCable.
A north-east resident told TheCable that his sister was trapped as a result of the attack.
Boko Haram has renewed attacks in the north-east despite the position of the federal government that the sect has been “technically defeated”.
On Christmas eve, a faction of Boko Haram affiliated to the Islamic State, killed 11 Christian captives in Borno, saying the action was taken to avenge the deaths of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, IS’ late leader and Abul-Hasan Al-Muhajir, its spokesman, who were killed in Syria in late October.
Earlier in the month, four abducted aid workers of the Action Against Hunger, an international non-government organisation, were killed by the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP).
The insurgents said the aid workers were killed following the breakdown of talks with the federal government.
