BLACK FRIDAY!!! Mass Exodus Hits Parts Of Northern Nigeria, Over The Brutal Murder Of Six Top Security Officers

There is tension in Adamawa town of Numan, with many residents fleeing the area, after at least six Mobile Police Officers were allegedly killed by some residents.

Security sources said the Officers were killed while trying to make arrests at a predominantly Fulani settlement.

Police Spokesperson, Othman Abubakar, said he had heard there was a problem in Numan, but could not immediately give details.

The North-East Chairman of Miyetti Allah, Mafindi Umaru Danburam, said he had received a report that there was a problem in Numan, “when some people in uniform attacked those that were taking refuge at Dowaya.”

He added that two people were shot, and that he was trying to get further details. Another source said those at the gathering were merely “mourning” their slain wives and children, when Police stormed the area. The “mourners” had relocated from Shafaran, Shawal, Gumara, Kikam and Kadamt, he said.

“Some residents in the area were not comfortable, so they tipped-off, and Mobile Police launched a night operation to arrest the Fulanis, and a fight ensued during which at least six Mobile Police were said to have been killed.

“As I am talking to you, more security operatives were deployed to Dowaya area, including Soldiers, and they have cordoned-off the village.

“There is pandemonium right now in Numan and environs; already residents are fleeing for fear of reprisals’’, said a vigilante member who asked not to be named.

Modibbo Ahmadu, a Fulani fleeing the area, said: “You know some of our brothers who were displaced are now taking refuge at Dowaya village, where they do observe the usual 40 days mourning, for those killed by Bachama militias.

“Just last night, we got a distress call that some people in security uniform stormed on them and had shot two youths; so definitely in this kind of situation anything could happen.

“And that is the situation for now, even we at the neighbouring villages are not safe, and many had fled’’, he said.
