Hundreds fled their homes as the outlaws stormed the village with 50 motorcycles, carrying 3 persons each.
The lucky ones deserted their homes about an hour before the bandits arrived.
“We learnt about the attack from villagers of other communities they raided before coming to Warari”, a local said.
