Two people died from a fire outbreak that was caused by intense shooting in the hotel while one of the gunmen was killed in the operation that lasted for about an hour.
A source, who craved anonymity, told the Punch that there was a fire at the hotel shortly after the shooting.
“The gunmen came for Subair but ended up shooting others in the process. They killed his girlfriend who was with him and then killed two other people. They then shot two others but those ones did not die,” he said.
“The shooting caused fire and two customers, who were in another room, were burnt to death. The fire continued to rage so we had no choice but to call on the fire service.”
