“The ugly incident happened around five to six o’clock Wednesdays evening, the locals noticed the terrorist numbering a hundred carrying sophisticated firearms and surrounded the Palace of the District Head firing sporadically on the air”

” They later gained access into the Palace and whisked the traditional ruler away along side his wife and six others that are with him in the Palace”

Mustapha Kaura said no live was lost in the incident, but the entire House was damaged in the course of gaining entrance into the Palace

The locals were highly terrified by the incident that forced them to flee for safety which also pave way for the terrorists to have a field day.

This is the third time in the three months bandits are attacking the area unleashing mayhem on the locals, killing innocent citizens, burning foodstuffs and carted away unspecified number of cattle.
