Adamawa state government has described as ‘shocking’ the extent  of destruction  of  lives and property in communities within  the boundaries of Borno and Adamawa, by insurgents.

Deputy Governor of Adamawa, Mr Bala Ngillari, who is also the chairman, Adamawa State Emergency Management Agency (ADSEMA), told newsmen on Wednesday in Yola that the situations called for concern.

“Communities along border of Borno and Adamawa states, are seriously devastated due to the frequent attacks.”

“They need urgent government attention and assistance to save and protect them from total extermination,” Ngillari said.

He warned that the recent attacks had displaced several communities,including women and children, who were now taking refuge in Madagali Local Government Area.

The deputy governor said almost all the displaced  persons were living under trees, uncompleted buildings and open spaces, adding that they were prone to another disaster arising from outbreak of disease.

He said that he met with  top officials of National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) in Abuja over the attacks, and they promised to reach out to the affected communities within a few days.

The Deputy governor called  on those sponsoring the insurgents, to have a rethink. (NAN)
