41 persons killes in Adamawa State 

No fewer than 41 persons were confirmed killed while 107 houses among other property were destroyed during the recent communal clashes   between the Lungudas tribe in Adamawa state and their Wajas counterparts of Gombe state.
The two tribes were at war following a dispute over a parcel of land. The District Head of Lafiya   in the area, Mr Clement Minakaro told the committee set up by Governor Mohammed Jibrilla to assess the crisis and reconcile the warring groups that there have been a long unresolved land dispute between the two ethnic groups. He told the committee members that a simple issue that could have been resolved amicably was allowed to degenerate into a full blown war where even those passing by on the ever busy Yola—Gombe road were not spared.
Earlier, the Hama Bachama, Chief Honest Irmiya had told the Assessment and Reconciliation committee   to do a thorough investigation as to what led to the communal clashes between Lunguda &waja .
Homun Honest Irimiya observed that the call had become necessary in order to resolve the long standing dispute between the two groups.
He expressed sadness that a clash of such magnitude will happen in his chiefdom when the area was yet to fully recover from the Fulani/ Bachama carnage that had claimed hundreds of lives and property worth millions destroyed in Numan, Demsa and Lamurde local government areas of the chiefdom
