After suspected herdsmen went on a rampage in an early morning attack on Lawaru and Dong Communities in Demsa Local Government Area of Adamawa state, two village heads have been reported dead.

At least two people have been reported killed following the early Monday morning attacks on communities in Adamawa State.

Local residents confirmed to Channels Television that the Village Heads of Lawaru and Dong communities in Demsa Local Government area lost their lives in the Monday early morning attack.
