State, shot dead two people before carting away undisclosed amount of

money.

18 at about 7pm.



Yamu said the owner of the petrol filling station reported that the

robbers stormed his business premises located at the Tor-Donga rural

community, shot dead two people, carted away monies and other

valuables.



He said the robbery gang had ordered everyone to lay on the barefloor

while their illicit operation lasted.



But, one of the victim had raised his head during the process which

propelled the angry robbers to pull their trigger on him.

hospital, alongside another civilian also shot dead by the robbers at

the scene of the incident.



A soldier, who is part of a military special squad that responded to a
