On Thursday, gunmen intercepted a Canter vehicle conveying bridesmaids and traders to the community market, slit the throat of the driver and then opened fire on the vehicle, killing all on board and then set it ablaze.
They then proceeded to the community market and started shooting indiscriminately.
“They arrived in large number and on motorbikes intercepting and killing people who were coming or going out of the village. About 41 people were shot dead within a short period of time, ” a resident, Hussaini Abdu said.
