On behalf of the people and government of Adamawa, His Excellency deeply sympathises with the people of Gulak and other surrounding villages and towns whose areas had been overran by insurgents.
The concomitant effects of the insurgency like displacement of whole villages and towns create multitudes of internally displaced persons whose management and welfare, the government is left to bear.”

People in areas bordering Madagali LG, like Michika Local Government have started fleeing to Yola, Uba and Mubi for fear of terrorists who are believed to be approaching.
