Atak’Njei is the community where the Palace of the Paramount ruler of Agwatyap Chiefdom is located.

The police authorities are yet to comment on the incident.

President of Atyap Community Development Association, Sam Timbuwak, said the gunmen invaded the community from a nearby bush at about 9:00p.m on Wednesday and began to shoot sporadically at people’s houses.

According to him, the terrorists attacked five houses during which they shot eight people to death while four others sustained varying degrees of injuries.

The Atyap President, who disclosed that the scene of the attack is located very close to a military checkpoint, however lamented over the late arrival of soldiers to the community after the attackers had committed their heinous crimes and bolted away.

He urged security agencies to be more proactive to their responsibility.
