The bandits who were said to have stormed the area in their large numbers shot sporadically and killed nine persons before abducting over 20 others and rustled several livestock.

It would be recalled that following a tip-off from human intelligence sources, troops of operation Forest Sanity under 1 Division Nigerian Army ambushed and neutralised a notorious bandit leader, Isiya Danwasa, and his cohort.
