Unknown gunmen suspected to be bandit terrorists have killed at least fourteen people in a fresh attack at Mado village, Mabushi in Atyap Chiefdom of Zangon Kataf LGA of Kaduna State.
It was gathered that the terrorists also burnt down some houses in the attack that occurred in Saturday night.
The attack was confirmed by the Chairman, Atyap Chiefdom Peace and Security Partnership Committee, (ACPSPC), Mr John Bala Gora.
Speaking to DailyTrust, he called on security agencies to double their efforts to secure the “defenceless and peace loving people of the chiefdom”.
Meanwhile, a Fulani settlement in Kankada, Madakiya District in Bajju Chiefdom of Zangon Kataf LGA, was burnt down on Sunday.
A female resident of the settlement who was rescued, Halima Haruna, revealed that the attackers surrounded their community in the early hours of Sunday.
A wife to the Ardo of Kankada, Haruna, said she saw two corpses, man and a woman, on her way to hide somewhere.
“We were forced to run and hide somewhere while some of our people ran to the bush for their safety.
“We don’t know what happened to them as I am speaking with you now, we spent three hours before the security arrived and took us to the Police Station here in Zonkwa. Our houses were totally razed,” she told DailyTrust.
She said the attackers told them that they want to take revenge of what happened to them Saturday night somewhere around Samaru Kataf, “which we know nothing about.”
Speaking on the attacks, the Police Public Relations Officer, Kaduna State, ASP Muhammed Jalige said Policemen have been deployed to the affected communities.
