According to a local source, the suspected armed herdsmen numbering over 10 stormed Tse Gamber in Sengev Council ward on Sunday morning, shooting sporadically and killing three persons.

The attackers left Gamber and headed for Camp Nagi in Mbachohon Council ward, a settlement along Naka-Agagbe Road, and opened fire on innocent civilians, killing two persons.

The unprovoked attacks, according to the source, have left many people displaced for fear of another attack while many settlements along the general area are not safe, as they called on security agencies to deploy to the area to forestall further attacks.

Meanwhile, the bodies of those killed have been removed from the scene of the attacks, and residents have deserted their homes in Gamber and Camp Nagi in Mbachohon.
