Suspected Fulani herdsmen on Monday night reportedly killed 11 people in a fresh attack in Gora Gan village, Zangon Kataf LGA of Kaduna State.

Naija News understands that seven persons were reported to have suffered different degrees of injuries, with others missing.

The Vice-Chairman of CAN in the local government area, Pastor Isaac Ango Makama told DAILY POST that the attackers numbering 50, stormed the village at about 7 pm.

He said the attackers started shooting sporadically, leading to the loss of lives and burning of an undisclosed number of houses.

According to Makama, the remains of the people killed were deposited at the Zonkwa General hospital while some of the villagers are still searching for their loved ones.

He called on individuals and organisations to come to the aid of the affected villagers to assist them at this trying moment with foodstuffs and other materials of livelihoods.

The cleric added that Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp at Zonkwa is daily receiving more displaced people coming to take shelter.
