Security agents have killed a member of Boko Haram sect who raided Kaya village in Madagali local government area of Adamawa State.
The state Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Mr Ahmad Sajoh, who confirmed the incident on Tuesday in Yola, said it occurred on Monday.
Sajoh said the insurgents attacked the village where they looted and destroyed 13 houses before they were repelled.
The commissioner said one of the terrorists was killed while a vigilante member sustained an injury.
“The military, hunters and vigilantes have repelled the invaders. Adamawa Government commiserates with the victims and salutes the resilience of our people,” he said.
He called for more public support and understanding over the latest operations by Nigerian Army and other security agencies in the state.
“The current operations by the security agencies are intended to ensure enhanced security situation all over the state ahead of the end of Ramadan Sallah celebrations.
“The general public is therefore requested to remain calm and be law-abiding.
“The operations by the army, Nigeria Air Force and other security agencies are part of the measures of the state security council to ensure a peaceful and hitch-free festive period,” the commissioner said.
