The woman suspected to be in her late 40’s was shot whilst taking her bath.

People in the Bimoba Community are linking the incident to the protracted conflict between the Konkomba’s and the Bimoba’s.

The two ethnic groups have been engaged in violent clashes for years over a parcel of land.

Assemblyman for the area Daniel Duut speaking to XYZ News said there could be reprisal attacks if the situation is not contained immediately.
