Bandits kill over 32 in Kaduna communities

By Editor

No fewer than 32 locals  were  killed by bandits in separate attacks on four communities in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

It was gathered that the gunmen attacked  Ungwan Gamu, Dogon Noma, Ungwan Sarki and Maikori in Southern Kaduna. 

The District Head of Kufena, Titus Dauda , said  the gunmen attacked the communities on Sunday, killing 32 people, adding that a church and many houses were burnt by the hoodlums. 

According to him, "the  bandits first attacked Dogon Noma in the early hours of Sunday  and killed many  people mostly men , before proceeding to Ungwan Gamu and Maikori villages where they also killed people and burnt down houses."

"The victims have been laid to rest while the affected communities have been deserted by the residents due to fear of being attacked."

Some locals claimed  a helicopter was seen shooting at the residents from the air, while the remaining bandits were on the ground to attack any fleeing residents, which was countered by a security agent.

He said under anonymity that the military engaged the bandits both by ground and air, which  eventually forced the bandits to retreat.

The police were yet to react on the incident
