A member of the community, who identified himself as Usman, said the gunmen invaded the village late Saturday.
According to him, the gunmen went to a house of their victim to abduct him but he was absent, then they fired sporadic into the air and wounded three persons.
He said: “Actually, they missed their target when they came to kidnap a member of the community, the man was not at home.
“I came out of the room after the gunmen had left and discovered three persons with bullet wounds lying on the ground.”
According to him, the victims were taken to a clinic at Lokogoma village in Nasarawa state.
The chairman of the council, Alhaji Abdullahi Galadima, who confirmed the attack through his media aide, Haruna Usman, said the chairman visited the community on Sunday to condole with the people.
