He alleged they came from the neighbouring Buma State.

Minister Nin told Eye Radio during a telephone interview  on Wednesday the state government was addressing the matter:

The government will see on how the situation can be contained to avoid these provocations all the time and recurrent attacks,” he said.

Eye Radio’s efforts to reach Buma state authorities for a comment were not immediately successful.
