Though Police sources described the Dakata attack as armed robbery, residents of the area said they heard several gun shots.
“I can confirm to you that gunmen on motorbikes opened fire on a group of people playing draft. I counted five dead bodies and several others were wounded,” said a resident.
At least five men have been killed on Tuesday (today) by unknown gunmen in Dakata, Kano state.
It was gathered that the 5 men were killed around 5pm while playing a game of draughts in the vicinity of the FAN milk plant in Dakata.
Security agents are presently at the scene trying to arrange for the evacuation of the corpses.
