The spokesperson of Miango Youth Development Association, Nuhu Bitrus Nga, also told SaharaReporters that the attack happened at about 8am when the family members were planning to go to their farm.
He identified the dead victims as Amos David, 42years, Reuben Sunday, 28, and Abednego Amos aged 8 years while 12-year-old Emma Amos was injured by gunshot.

It was learnt that Nkiendonwro village had been deserted due to an attack which led to the death of over 29 people in 2017 while the entire village was razed down.
The larger number of inhabitants of the village therefore, abandoned the area to seek refuge in some other parts of Rigwe land.
