Suspected migrant herdsmen have killed six hunters in a farming community in Song Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
Local sources said the gunmen arrived the community, Aljannaru, in a night raid, destroying farms, shooting at people, and getting the six hunters killed.
The sources said they suspected the attackers to be members of the Boko Haram sect who have been troubling much of the Northeast.
However, the Adamawa State Command which confirmed the killing of the six hunters, was definite that the attackers were herdsmen.
Speaking to our correspondent Sunday night, the Command Spokesman, Sulaiman Nguroje, said the killing of the six was preceded with the invasion of the farm of a hunter by the herdsmen.
Nguroje said the hunter whose farm was invaded was a resident of Gombi Local Government Area who had a farm in Aljannaru.
