Reports say Pa Tamungang’s compound, a native of Pinyin was broken into and looted by soldiers. “Elder Tamungang Solomon’s store broken, Pa Isaiah Achu Tamungang’ store broken and his life saved only by the money he gave them and His Grace, Tamungang Ignatius Awah’s son’s money stolen and Pa Tamungang’s cousin’s house razed at Mitanyen,” a source added.
Several houses were also burnt to the ground as villagers ran to the bushes for safety.
