On December 28, 2022, about 15 people in the Kurawa, Ruwan Bore, Gatawa and Dangari communities were killed and several others wounded.
According to a resident, Nura Mamman who spoke to PREMIUM TIMES, the attackers invaded Dangari a few minutes after 2 p.m.
“I was in my house when I heard screams of women and children. By then, the bandits were trying to enter the community but a team of Soldiers and policemen with vigilante members was putting them off. You know how they normally come to attack, they divide themselves into two or more groups and they were many this time around.
