A 13-year-old boy Yahaya Musa was killed during a attack on Zankan village, a Fulani settlement in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
According to Daily Trust the gunmen came to the village in an unidentified car around 8.30pm on Saturday and opened fire.
A resident who pleaded anonymity for fear of being attacked, said, “The gunmen came in a car and opened fire on residents of the village. They killed a 13-year-old boy and injured five others.”
In a related development, a resident of Zangon Kataf, Danjuma Musa has accused the locals in the area of stealing his N40, 000, his phone and taking the key of his motorcycle on Thursday.
He said, “I was passing by the Zangon Kataf General Hospital on my motorcycle when I saw a large crowd of Fulani women hanging around the hospital. I wanted to pass, but my mind told me to come back and find out if all was well. They said all was well, but as I was about getting on my motorcycle, I saw two Zangon Kataf youths that I knew, so I stopped and said hello only for them to ask me to come down from the motorcycle. They collected my valuables, including N40, 000, my phone, motorcycle key and ATM cards, after which they took me inside the hospital premises and threatened to kill me.”
He said a Civil Defence personnel intervened to secure his freedom but his belongings had not been returned by the boys.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Aliyu, Usman confirmed both incidents and said they were being investigated.
