It was gathered that the gunmen attacked some people, who were on thier way from Jol to Sho village and also killed the STF officer who was on a commercial motorcycle on his way to his duty post.

The commercial motorcylist was however lucky to have escaped unhurt.

In a similar incident, another set of gunmen in the early hour of Tuesday killed two people at Jebu Sop and sacked the villagers from their abode setting their houses ablaze.
