According to the Secretary, the terrorists invaded the village at around 7:pm and opened fire killing four people in the same compound while two in another family.
It was also stated that the assailants killed two children during the deadly attack.
Markus said, “We were going about our normal businesses when we heard gunshots, we thought it was the military at first until we saw it was the Fulanis who came in from Zango Urban.
“Before the military arrived, they’ve succeeded in killing six persons, including 2 children.
“The arrival of the military was what scared them, and they took to their hills and left the community.
“It’s unfortunate this kind of sad incident continues to happen in our villages when we thought normalcy had returned.
“We appealed to the government and the military to redouble their efforts and declare war against these terrorists who invaded villages and killed innocent people.”
