The annual festival brings the hunter together to retake oath to serve humanity, particularly assisting security agencies tackling the Boko Haram insurgency in the North East.

Chairman of Adamawa Hunters Association/Acting Chairman for North East, Malam Mohammed Tola, urged his collagues to “remain steadfast commitment to serve our communities and father land”.

Tola lauded the Government and Adamawa State Traditional Council for their support to the members, adding that such had gone a long way in facilitating their activities especially the fight against insurgents in the region.

Administrative Secretary of the association, Malam Salihu Buba, said the ceremony was to also recognize genuine members and expose fake ones.


Woman Leader, Aisha Bakari, pledged the commitment of female hunters to continue to contribute their quota like their male counterparts.

Highlights of the occasion were the drinking of concoction by the members for protection and the conduction of rituals on their dane guns to function properly against Boko Haram fighters and enemy hunters in North East who also have knowledge of the terrain.
