In the attack at the Gamboru market which led to the death of a trader, it was learnt that the incident led to pandemonium as residents had to scamper for their lives.
The gunmen were said to have heightened the fear of the traders at the market when they shot sporadically into the air to make way for the escape.

But the police spokesman however confirmed the killings to BBC Hausa service which was monitored in the town.
