Some villagers had earlier alerted us that they saw strange faces around the Babbangida axis.
So on sighting them coming, we all ran into the bush for safety.
Another resident, reports that the attackers invaded the community at about 6.15pm and started shooting sporadically. He, however, noted that the military engaged them in a gun battle.
