Kaduna State has witnessed yet another bloody attack by gunmen suspected to be Fulani Militia, Naija News reports.

Reports emerging on Tuesday (today) have it that at least six persons were murdered on Monday night in Unguwan Bulus, an area in Zaman Dabo community, Atyap Chiefdom in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area of the state.

The assailants, according to reports, stormed the village in their numbers while the residents were already asleep and started shooting sporadically and also set some houses on fire.

A source who reportedly spoke with Daily Post confirmed that the suspected Fulani militias came around 10 pm and started shooting sporadically thereby causing the deaths of the victims.

The attacks by the suspected Fulani militias have gone unabated without the government coming up with any concrete steps to bring the ugly incidences to end the unwanted killings and destruction of properties of the victims,” the source was quoted as saying.

However, the state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, could not be reached for confirmation as he did not respond to calls put through to his phone.

Naija News understands that scores of people have been killed, many rendered homeless in Southern Kaduna by terrorists in recent months.

This recent attack is coming hours after a group of bandit terrorists had bombed a train on the Abuja-Kaduna railroad, causing the shutting down of train operations on the route for fear of uncertainty.
