“The attackers stormed the community around 3am when the people were asleep and went from house to house unleashing their deadly act against the people.”
“As l am talking to you, we are yet to ascertain the number of those killed and those injured by the attackers until we go round the area that is when we know who and who is around and what actually happened.”
“Most of those killed were burnt in their houses as the people were fast asleep as at the time the gunmen came to the community,” he said.
“People’s foodstuffs have also been destroyed, other valuables were also burnt.”
