Garba, added that “among the victims of the attack was  officer Jijjilo who had his immediate younger brother killed by the bandits, while his wife and that of his younger brother were abducted.”

Another eyewitness, Bashir Ruwan Doruwa disclosed that four members of his family were abducted.

“I was in my house sleeping with my family. All of a sudden, we heard heavy sounds of gunshots.  The Terrorists forced my door open. We hid at different locations in the house, but these people kidnapped four members of my family.”

Bashir Ibrahim, told HumAngle that “Alhaji Hassan Abubakar Ruwan Doruwa has two of his younger brothers, Rayyanu and Basiru abducted by the terrorists.” The funeral prayer for the four dead persons was held at 10 a.m., on Friday.
