“They (Boko Haram) sneaked into our town Pallam, midnight at about 11 p.m., and started shooting sporadically, killing and burning houses. They abducted some of our people, mostly men.
“I escaped by the whiskers and fled into a nearby hiding place before escaping, no soldier came to our rescue. For now I can’t tell the exact figures of the casualty. It was terrible,” a fleeing resident, Abamu Japhet, said.
Police spokesman in the state, Othman Abubakar, said he is yet to be briefed on the development.
Barely a week ago, the terrorists launched a similar attack on neighbouring Wanu, Kamale and Kafin Hausa communities of Michika and Madagali areas.
Pallam is the hometown of the Deputy Speaker of the Adamawa State House of Assembly, Emmanuel Tsamdu.
