The raid was carried out on Monday, March 20. A community leader, Chief Udam Wuhe, said more than 10 gunmen stormed the town from TorTonda- Zaki Biam road at about 5:00pm.

According to him, the residents counted not fewer than 20 dead bodies with several others injured and many houses razed.

Daily Post reports that Wuhe could not ascertain if the attackers were Fulani herdsmen.

The incident is coming barely one week after suspected herdsmen killed over 10 person in Buruku area of the state, which led to the governor, Samuel Ortom issuing them 72 hours ultimatum to vacate the area.
