The police chief said, “Fourteen people were killed and six people were fatally injured. The sad thing is that out of these 14 dead bodies that were brought out, 13 are from one family.”

He added, “But in the interim, I want to give you that assurance that we are not going to relent in our efforts.

“We will make sure that we get to the root of anything that is behind the killings around that zone.”

According to him, a team of security personnel including the Divisional Police Officer in the area to the community, was dispatched as soon as he became aware of the situation.

He, however, stated that gunmen fled the crime scene before the arrival of police operatives.

Ayuba assured that the State Police Command would not rest on its oars until the perpetrators of the crime are found.

While reiterating that police authorities are investigating the invasion and will disclose the real cause soon, he said that preliminary investigations revealed that there had been a long standing communal feud within the community.
