In the process, they came to our house, set the house ablaze, with 11 people inside. All the 11 people are members of my family.

We just performed the funeral prayer for the 21 this afternoon (Wednesday). Initially, it was 20 corpses we buried first before we later discovered one more corpse inside the bush we buried him too. Right now, people have fled the village. I am the only one left in the village now because I have come to pick something. I just took my brother and his two wives to Zaria. I am about leaving now myself. Apart from the people killed, there are nine people we are yet to see since after the incident.
