“In the process, the gunmen killed at least 100 cows and maimed several others,’’ Umar said.
He explained that throughout Thursday night, community members conveyed injured cows to sell to butchers in Jalingo, the state capital; and Mayo-Belwa in neighbouring Adamawa.
Umar appealed to military authorities and other security agencies to investigate the alleged involvement of the military in the attacks.
The affected area has been experiencing frequent violence that has led to loss of lives and property.
