According to eye witnesses, the armed men invaded the town and immediately began shooting sporadically, as residents scuffled for safety.
The random bullets being sprayed into the air by the terrorists left six dead, and many others injured.
It was gathered that they successfully made away with domestic animals from the town; the very reason for their attack in the first place.
Confirming the attack, the State Police Command spokesman, Gambo Isah said injured persons have been evacuated to hospitals for treatment.
“It is true. The terrorists struck around 1.30 pm and killed six people while six people were injured. Those injured have been evacuated to hospitals for treatment. Our operatives are already on ground there,” he said
