The Adamawa State Commissioner of Information and Strategy, Ahmad Sajoh, told Channels Television that the military and the insurgents were engaged in a fierce battle with residents fleeing for their lives.

According to him, the vigilance group in the town and the hunters association are assisting the military in a bid to repel the attack and gunshots can be heard all over.

Many scared residents have fled the town and are hiding in the bushes, mountains, and hills.
