The highly-publicized cease fire agreement between the Federal Government and Boko Haram doesn’t seem to be working, as the insurgents continue to kill, abduct, and destroy the lives of innocent Nigerians.
Vanguard reports that the terrorists yesterday attacked Mubi, the second biggest town and main commercial hub of Adamawa State.
Soldiers and hundreds of residents are said to have fled the town in the midst of the attacks.
Joshua Chinasa, one of the residents who fled told reporters:
We are in serious trouble as these boys (Boko Haram) have taken over our towns, splitting in groups with some Boko Haram members advancing towards Mararraban Mubi and Vintim, the home town of Chief of Defence Staff, Air Marshal Alex Badeh, giving Nigerian troops a hot chase. Mubi has now become a ghost of itself as people in their hundreds are fleeing for their lives. Even here in Maiha, we saw military vehicles zooming off towards Yola, the state capital.”
Also, Ahmad Sajoh, the spokesperson to former Adamawa governor, Murtala Nyako, disclosed that his daughter was missing following the attack.
“I got a call from my daughter who is a 200 level student of Adamawa State University, Mubi. She was hysterical. I was in Abuja for a meeting, but her information forced me to head back to Yola immediately. She told me that the insurgents were approaching the town which is the second largest in Adamawa State. I ordered her to leave the hostel and join her cousins to escape the town. I called my father who confirmed the story.
By the time I arrived Yola airport, th
e town had fallen to the insurgents. My parents are trapped while my daughter and her cousins are missing,” he said.
Bala James Ngillari, the state governor, has urged the people of the state, to remain calm as “security agents were on top of the situation.”
