The Adamawa State Police Command has confirmed the killing of seven people over allegation of witchcraft at Dasin Bwate village in Fufore Local Government Area of the state.

DSP Sulaiman Nguroje, the police spokesman, confirmed the development to the News Agency of Nigeria.

He spoke with the NAN on Wednesday in Yola.

Nguroje said the incident occurred on Tuesday, adding that an investigation team had been deployed to the village.
He said: “Seven people were killed in Dasin Bwate village in Fufore LGA over witchcraft allegation.
