Dozens Killed As Gunmen Attacked 5 Kaduna Villages

Gunmen riding a motorbike unleashed terror on some villages in Igabi and Giwa Local Government Areas of Kaduna State killing not less than 30 people dead with several others injured.

The affected villages, according to reports include Kerawa, Rago, Marina, Zariyawa, Hashimawa, Gidan Musa Saidu, and Unguwar Barau.

The attacks have not been confirmed by either the Kaduna Police Command or the state government.

A Fleeing villager told VOA Hausa that,” the gunmen struck in the early hours of Sunday, shooting sporadically, killing and burning houses.

”Three of my brothers were killed; they didn’t spare anybody;  killed even infants and Almajiris, and unfortunately, no timely intervention or rescue that came while the attack lasted for almost three hours,” he fumes.

Reports say troops of the Nigerian Army and Air Force launched offensive attacks against the bandits and in the process, killed many of them.

Sources also said that the bandits launched the attacks in what seems like revenge against the villagers who they accused of providing information to security agencies which resulted in the killing of their members.

The military is said to be engaged in several offensive attacks on camps occupied by the bandits inside the thick bush within Giwa, Birnin Gwari and Igabi local government areas of the state.
