Residents said they were alarmed that the attackers also hit Tsukwa village, which is about a mile from Anyiin where police special forces are stationed.

“If they could still return to Tsukwa to carry out another attack despite its proximity to Anyiin, then we can all conclude that there’s no security and even those of us in Anyiin are not safe,” a community chief said on strict anonymity Friday morning.

Tsukwa was one of the seven villages that recorded casualties in the January 1 attacks linked to suspected herdsmen.
