                                 Adamawa State Thrown Into Mourning As 48 People Killed In Communal Clash
48 persons have been killed in a communal clash that happened in Lamurde Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
The bodies that have been recovered from the violence are being prepared for mass burial even as the casualty figure is expected to rise, a source told SaharaReporters on Saturday.

Information gathered revealed that sophisticated firearms were used by the warring communities in Tingno under Lamurde Local Government Area, causing destruction of lives and property. 



The fight began on Thursday night between the indigenous Chobok tribe and their Hausa settlers, according to a source in the area.
It was gathered that the fight was sparked by contention over the right to slaughter a pig at a local abattoir, which later degenerated into a bloody fight. 
                      
The State Police PRO, DSP Suleiman Nguroje, who confirmed the violent conflict did not give casualty details.
He said, “The state Commissioner of Police has directed the Squadron Mobile Commander and the area Commander Numan Division to proceed with all DPOs within that area and all other operational commanders."
