An eyewitness told journalists that six gunmen descended on the area around 8 p.m. on Sunday and ordered everyone to lie down.
“They collected money and handsets from the people before shooting sporadically as they retreated, hitting four people in the process,” he said.
The eyewitness, who preferred anonymity, said that the attack took place in front of the house of Alhaji Sahabo Jauro, the PDP Chairman in Mubi North Local Government Area.
“Most of those affected were visitors to the
politician house”, he added. Apart from the incident, the Sallah celebration was generally peaceful in Mubi and other major towns across the state.
