He, in spite of that, said investigation was ongoing to unravel those behind the killings.

Press gathered that the assailants first killed three children from the same family in Gbra Zongo village before moving to the neighbouring Kperie community where they also killed two women.

Also, a resident of the community, Danjuma Anthony, confirmed the killings in Gbra Zongo village, and gave the names of the deceased children as Rachel, 6, Jacob, 3; and Charity a one year old.

Anthony said, “The family is in pains because those killed during the attack in Gbra Zongo were the children of my younger brother. The children were just sleeping in their house around 9:45 p.m when the gunmen who were about three came and killed them.”

“The father was not at home because he had gone on security patrol of the community while the wife who was at home was sleeping in another room. This kind of unprovoked attack and killing of innocent children only shows the level of insecurity our people are facing in the community. It’s really unfortunate”, he lamented.
