The gunmen attacked an oil barge along the waterways being escorted by the soldiers and two civilians.

Others in the ill-fated vessel were said to have escaped with gunshot wounds by diving into the water and swimming to safety.

The incident was said to have occurred on Sunday night. It reportedly unsettled the community as troops were said to have mobilised to the area demanding residents to produce the perpetrators, the Nation reports.

Sources, who confirmed the development, said angry soldiers had started burning some houses in the area following failures by the residents to identify the suspects.
