Gwari said the bandits stormed his community at about 2pm on Saturday and immediately opened fire on the innocent residents who were going about their daily duties.

He said some villagers sustained varying degrees of injuries during the attack and were rushed to hospitals, while most of the villagers fled from their homes due to fear of a fresh attack by the bandits.
