Mr Cafra Caino, the Chairman of Kajuru local government area who spoke to newsmen after the attack said that the gunmen invaded the village around 5:00 am and started shooting sporadically, thereby forcing residents to scamper for safety.

Caino said nine people were shot dead in the attack by the bandits while many other victims who sustained varying degrees of injuries have been taken to the hospital for treatment.
