Yola – Tension has again engulfed residents of Numan Local Government Area of Adamawa State following the killing of four police officers by herdsmen on the early hours of Friday.
Source from Numan revealed that four police officers were killed by persons suspected to be herdsmen at a village near Numan the local government headquarters.
Reports have it that the attack is a reprisal attack on one of the villages that is believed to have been responsible for the killing of their members.
According to the reports, the police men rushed to the area following a “save our soul appeal that Fulani herdsmen had mobilized and spoiling for a fight”.
Unknown to the police, on reaching the place, the herdsmen engaged the police in a shoot -out where four of the policemen were reportedly killed while figures have not been given as casualties on the other side since herdsmen do not leave their dead behind.
It was also gathered from reliable sources that soldiers have been drafted to the area to arrest the situation and presently combing the area for the fleeing herdsmen.
