Three persons have been confirmed killed after an early Sunday morning attack by armed men in Kikon Village of Numan Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
The gunmen suspected to be herdsmen stormed the village on motor-bikes, setting houses and food barns on fire, carting away cattle belonging to the farmers.
According to Channels, the invaders stormed the village at about 2am while the villagers were still sleeping, causing them to run into the bush for safety.
Recall that herdsmen have recently launched deadly attacks on farming communities in Benue state, killing several people.
The Northern elders has also called on the federal government to be more proactive in protecting lives and property of citizens particularly those in states currently involved in herdsmen/farmer clashes.
