It was a violent attack; the gunmen were shooting sporadically, and bullets were hitting my house’s roof, so I had to flee.

Three bodies were found after they had departed. Among the three bodies found on the ground is an individual affiliated with the Ebubeagu Security Network. Up to ten gunshots are lodged in his body.
