An eyewitness, one Ibrahim Kwangwami, the suspected bandits stormed the area in their large numbers on motorcycles and started shooting sporadically.

It was gathered that the Chief Imam, Alhaji Liman Auwalu was hit by a stray bullet while the other person known as Hamisu Bako was shot dead at his farm.
