The source said, “Security men within that community have been going to the stream to bath and what they used to do is while some are taking their  bath  others will be on alert keeping watch.

“So, the victims were bathing while two other colleagues were keeping vigil when suddenly suspected herdsmen who had laid an ambush attacked them and killed the two, while others escaped.”

When contacted, the state command PRO, Peter Adakole, confirmed the incident.
