The bodies of the traditional ruler and two others who were holding meetings with the monarch have been deposited at the mortuary, according to the community leader, who was close to tears while fielding queries from Newsmen.

Another community source, who requested anonymity, told Newsmen that the gunmen were alleged to have carried out the attack in two locations and then fled the scene.

He stated that the number of people slain could not be determined at this time since the tragic episode that broke peace and calm in Agwa village left inhabitants frightened, with most significant individuals fleeing to town for fear of being killed by the rampaging unknown gunmen.
