“We were all indoors with so many settlers far away from home in their farmlands when we heard gunshots and later Mama’s voice shouting in pain. Her attacker(s) fled the scene before our arrival.
“We are surprised because Hajia is a peace-loving person and a mother of all. We pray the police fish out the criminals and their sponsors because it means we are no longer safe in our own house."

Nigerian Tribune, in its report, said efforts to reach Omala Divisional Police Officer (DPO) on his mobile number have been unsuccessful so far.
