Commander of the troops in Madagali, Col. U.S Abdulsalam, confirmed the attack, saying, “Yes, there was an attack but it was repelled successfully.”

Until the Boko Haram insurgents turned against Garkida in Gombi Local Government Area in February, Madagali and neighbouring Michika were- the two LGAs that the insurgents had been attacking in Adamawa State.

In most of these attacks, the insurgents had reportedly broken into shops to steal food items and drugs.
