The Divisional Police Officer of Vunokilang Police Station in the Girei Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Okozie Okereofor, and sixty villagers were killed on Sunday when gunmen, suspected to be Fulani herdsmen, invaded four communities in the local government area.
Also, two riot policemen, who were on their way to quell the violence in Gerei, were killed in Mimbia, a border village between Plateau and Kaduna states when their patrol vehicle came under attack from rampaging Fulani herdsmen.
The acting Brigade Commander of the twenty-three Armored Brigade in Yola, Colonel A. B. Poopola, said the situation had been brought under control while soldiers were helping the police to maintain law and order.
