It was gathered that after the militia group concluded their attacked on the community yesterday night, bodies of men, women, and children caught up in the gunfire while scampering for safety were seen littered all around the village.
Meanwhile, over a thousand cows were said to have been rustled while hundreds of other livestock were either shot or burnt as a result of the fire that engulfed the village.
