Reports indicate that the five men who were all security guards at the market met their deaths after the gang descended on them with rude weapons.

Vihiga County Commander Hassan Barua disclosed that the gang broke into shops at the market and made away with property of unknown value, leaving a wave of destruction and death in their wake.

Barua who visited the scene made it clear that security agencies would bring those involved to justice.

"We will pursue those involve. We will address insecurity," Barua said.

Residents who spoke to the media expressed concern that the attack took place despite the market being located barely 500 metres from Kilingili Police Station.

Shortly after killing the five men, the assailants headed to Ilungu market where they attacked three others, leaving them with serious injuries.
