SEVEN people have been killed in connection with allegation of witchcraft in Dasin Bwate Village of Fufore Local Government Area of Adamawa State on Tuesday.

  Their corpses were found in a compound in the village.

  A resident of the area who identified himself as Chukpat Nang said the seven persons were rounded up by a mob from different locations in their neighborhood before they were taken to an isolated spot where they met their deaths.

  He said they were accused of witchcraft by some residents who raised alarm, but people including their village head had deserted the community after the ‘suspects’ were lynched by the mob.

 Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of Adamawa Police Command, Sulaiman Nguroje, confirmed the development.

  According to Nguroje, though no arrest has been made so far an investigative team had been deployed to the village.

  “Seven people were killed in Dasin Bwate village in Fufore LGA over witchcraft allegation. The police have deployed investigation team into the village. We are calling on the neighbouring villages to assist the police with useful information on the whereabouts of the residents of Dasin Bwate,” Nguroje said.
