In his words, “we all awoke to the noise from the attack and scampered for safety as we saw houses going up in flames.
“We suspected the assailants were Fulani herdsmen given their war-cry which was in Hausa and Arabic.
Richard said one of the villagers died at the scene of the attack while two victims, who were rescued, died in the process of reviving them.
It would be recalled that there was a similar attack on the same local government on January 1 which left over 75 persons dead.
