“The bandits opened fire and hit the commander in his legs and he fell. They then shot him in the head, shattering his skull. A resident, who was hit by bullets, died on his way to a hospital,” the source had added.

In the fresh attack on Monday, SaharaReporters learnt that scores of residents were also kidnapped from the New Millennium City Settlement.
