An indigene of Luubara, Nwibani Barry, who confirmed the incident said the gunmen raided the community at about 8 pm on Tuesday, December 29, and proceeded to a beer parlor near the market square where they opened fire on the revelers.
Nwibani revealed that the victims, Timothy Baridapdo and Bariyaa, died on the spot while two ladies, who sustained gunshot injuries, were taken to the hospital by the Divisional Police Officer of Bori Division.
