Gunmen suspected to be herders have killed two people in an early morning attack on Shaforo and Kudumti communities in Numan Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

Witnesses said the attackers were herders, but the spokesman of the state Police Command, DSP Suleiman Nguroje, said they were cattle rustlers.

Nguroje said, “One of the attackers was killed in the crossfire with security operatives and his corpse has been deposited at the Numan mortuary.

“The CP has dispatched additional operatives to join other security agencies to comb the bushes in the area and arrest the fleeing cattle rustlers.”

Numan has long been troubled by herdsmen and armed persons, often with many lives lost and properties destroyed.
