A Boko Haram attack in a neighbouring village has led to tension in Garka, a village in Hong Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, is from Garka.
Garka residents are currently living in fear following the killing of at least 18 people in neighboring Dabna village.
According to reports, the incident occurred in the early morning hours of Wednesday.
Residents said half of the people living there have migrated to neighboring villages.
The villager also confirmed that Garka is on the radar of the attackers.
Hilda Joshua, a survivor, said that in addition to those who were killed, many were injured.
Despite escaping to the bush, he said that some of his family members and neighbours remained trapped in the village.
Another survivor said in addition to those killed in the village, three corpses were found lying in the bush around Kwapre, a neighbouring village.
Local sources reported that military fighter jets hovered over the villages and engaged the attackers.
Major Mohammed Haruna Sani, Public Relations Officer for 23 Armor Brigade, could not be reached as of the time this report was filed, as his telephone line had been disconnected.
