Many residents have been reportedly killed by Boko Haram insurgents who at about 7:00pm on Friday invaded Garkida town in Gombi Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
Many houses have also been reported burnt.
Personnel of the Nigerian Army who were said to have engaged the terrorists in a fierce gun battle pulled back for reinforcement.
This was what gave the terrorists opportunity, according to sources, to move into the town with full force and set many houses on fire.
Many persons, according to reports, are feared killed by the invaders who announced their entry into the town by shooting indiscriminately.
Garkida, a town in Gombi Local Government of Adamawa State is located on the Gombi-Biu -Damaturu Federal Road, very close to Sambisa Forest.
