At least seven were killed after suspected members of the Boko Haram sect attacked Midlu village of Vapura ward in Madagali local government area of the state on Wednesday.

The community hosts Sukur World heritage site which was destroyed by the insurgents in 2014.

Ahmad Sajoh, commissioner for information and strategy, confirmed the attack to reporters in Yola, the state capital.

He said the insurgents attacked the village and killed six people while one of the attackers was also killed.

“They (insurgents) attacked around 2 am, killing six people while one of them was killed by hunters.

“Soldiers and hunters have dislodged them from the area.”

Bulus Dauda, councillor representing the ward, told NAN that his people had vacated the area.

There has been a resurgence of attacks in the north-east since Tukur Buratai, chief of army staff, ordered his men to capture Abubakar Shekau, leader of the sect, within 40 days.

Last week, insurgents attacked a team of oil experts in Borno state, killing at least 48 persons, including soldiers and members of the civilian joint task force (CJTF) who provided security for the oil workers.

After the sad incident, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo ordered service chiefs to relcoate to the north-east.
