27 killed as herdsmen, farmers clash in Adamawa

The Adamawa State Police Command said 27 persons were killed in an overnight clash between farmers and Fulani herdsmen in Safere and Kodomti villages in Numan Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

The state police command said the attack occurred on Monday.

The incident, which left scores dead, mostly women and children happened 24 hours before the Tuesday’s suicide attack that rocked a mosque in Mubi, killing 50 persons with several others wounded.

The Police spokesman, Othman Abubakar, a Superintendent of Police, while reacting to the incident, said it was a reprisal carried out by farmers against the Fulani community in the area.

“Twenty-seven persons lost their lives in the attacks. The police first information report showed it is a reprisal against the Fulani by some Bachama farmers,” he told newsmen at a press briefing on Wednesday.

The spokesman,however, said the police were on top of the crisis.
