A gunman opened fire on people at Bigi Village in Bauchi State on Monday, killing many and injuring others, the police have said.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Abbas Abdullahi, confirmed the incident on Monday in Bauchi.

Mr. Abdullahi said all the victims have been taken to the University Teaching Hospital in Bauchi for treatment.

He said that not all the people shot had died, explaining that some of the victims were currently receiving treatment at the Teaching Hospital.

The police spokesperson said the number of casualties had not been determined by the police, assuring however, that the figure would be announced by the police in due course.

The police have cordoned off the area to prevent a breakdown of law and order.

Commissioner of Police in the state has also been condoned off.
