ISWAP gives notice of Christmas attack on Adamawa community

The Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) has dropped letters indicating its plan to attack Michika, a local government area in the northern part of Adamawa State.

Michika has long shared with neighboring Madagali, the fate of being the LGAs in Adamawa State that is most troubled by terrorists, initially the Boko Haram elements of the terrorist actors.

Sources said the letters sent out by ISWAP could be seen flying around in places around Michika.

“Yes, threat letters were dropped in Bazza and Michika towns. The terrorists have warned of an impending attack on our communities during Christmas festivities,” one of the sources said.
“As it is, our people have been terrified because the terrorists have earned a reputation of carrying out their threat anytime they make one.” the source added.

Contacted Wednesday afternoon, the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Suleiman Nguroje, said he was yet to get any dependable report on the matter.

The Brigade Commander of the 23 Brigade in Yola, Aminu Garba, would not make an authoritative comment either.

He said Michika did not fall within his control area and suggested contact with 28 Brigade in Chibok, Borno State.

Aminu Garba, however, boasted that ISWAP would not come into Michika and mess the place up unchallenged.

He said, “The issue of threat letters has now become a routine. Let them come and see if they will go back.”
