Also, two children were also victims of the vicious attack.

“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.
