Hunters Kill 2 Boko Haram Commanders In Adamawa

There was wild jubilation in Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State when news of two Boko Haram Commanders killed by hunters was announced.

The state’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Ahmed Sajoh, told newsmen that the feat recorded by the hunters received wide accolade, saying government will surely reciprocate the gesture through provision of logistic support.

The hunters repelled an attack by Boko Haram on Bakin Dutse and Gadamayo villages in Madagali council, killing two top commanders in the process.

Spokesman of the hunters in Madagali, Ali Hammajabu, said: “Yesterday (Wednesday), at bout 11p.m., our hunters successfully averted a massive raid on villages of Bitu, Gadamayo and Bakin Dutsi.


“The terrorists, who were on their way to attack selected communities, were ambushed on receiving intelligence report of the terrorists’ intention. We engaged them and in the process, two Boko Haram members, in military camouflage were killed.

“We found two AK-47 rifles and Police teargas cannisters, which we handed over to soldiers in Madagali.”

Badoo Member Arrested During Church Vigil

Plan by a suspected member of the dreaded Badoo cult group to kill a member of Ori-Oke branch of a white garment church at Irapade area of Agbowa Lagos, has been foiled, following his arrest.

The suspect, Ahmed Adeleke, 29, who disguised as a worshipper, attended the church’s vigil, at the end which a female member, who was sleeping at a corner of the church, was heard shouting that she had been attacked.

 When curious members got to her, it was discovered that her head had been smashed. She was said to have pointed to the direction where the suspect took. Some church members went in the direction and reportedly found the suspect changing his clothes. He was said to have denied the allegation.

 But on further observation, the white garment which he pulled off was discovered to be blood stained. Parading the suspect yesterday at the Police Officers Mess, Ikeja, the Lagos State Command boss, Fatai Owoseni said: “Policemen from Ipakodo Division rushed to the church.


“Although the suspect denied the accusation, when the area was searched, three handkerchiefs (white, blue and red) were recovered from him. Also, a grinding stone, which he used to hit his victim on the head, was also found.”

The suspect, however, denied being a Badoo member. He said: “I was a Muslim, but later converted to Christianity. I live at 9, Ojokoro Street, Agric. I was invited to worship there that night by a senior colleague, Kehinde, at the tailoring shop where I work.”

 However, asked if Kehinde had come to identify him, he shook his head, saying “how would she come? She may be afraid of being arrested as well.”
