There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. However, members of the Dogan and Fulani ethnic groups in the country often clash over access to land and water.
In a similar attack earlier this year, at least 150 people belonging to the Fulani community were killed. The attack was reportedly carried out by the Dogan ethnic group. Nearly one-third of the victims were children.
