[PREMIUMTIMESNG] Suspected Boko Haram
... not to be confused with Procol Harum, Harum Scarum, possibly to be confused with Helter Skelter. The Nigerian version of al-Qaeda and the Taliban rolled together and flavored with a smigeon of distinctly Subsaharan ignorance and brutality...
gunnies have attacked Kamale community in Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

Residents and officials said at least four people were killed and many others including a House of Representatives member, Adamu Kamale, injured

Security and local sources said though the incident occurred on Christmas Day, it was not reported until Thursday evening due to communication problems in the mountainous area of Michika.

’’It was not reported until Thursday due to lack of communication and the survivors have scampered while others climbed mountains for their lives,’’ Micheal Zira, one of the fleeing residents said.

Confirming the attack on Friday, the distraught politician, Mr. Kamale, said the assailants sneaked into the town while people were celebrating Xmas.

"It was horror and we saw hell when the button men, though I cannot ascertain whether they were Boko Haram or not came to the area at about 11 p.m. on Monday being the Christmas day and launched an attack on residents.

"They just opened fire sporadically during which they killed four people while several other residents were maimed in a bid to escape the onslaught.

"I escaped being killed by (the) whiskers and I can’t recall how I managed to climb the mountain. It was terrible," the politician, who represents Michika and Madagali federal constituency, said.

He urged the government to deploy more soldiers to curb insecurity in the area.
