11 killed in fresh attack in southern Kaduna

Eleven people have been reportedly killed in Maraban Agban Kagoro, Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Thursday evening, Daily Trust on Saturday gathered.

This came two days after the attack at Tsonje, a village along Kagoro-Gidan Waya Road in the same local government where the attackers were reported to have killed four people and burnt the village.

A resident of the area who spoke with our correspondent, Christopher Derek, said the attackers had launched the attacks on their community since Sunday and “for three consecutive days they were attacking the area with no any justification.”

Derek, who said they were tired of recurring attacks in the area, called on the government to wade in insecurity in Southern Kaduna in order to stop the crisis from escalating.

Another resident, Jonathan Joseph, said Bitrus Sani from Zunuruk, Kwasu Siman Balat from Garaje and Madam Gambo from Maraba Kagoro were among those killed in the attack.

“But as I am talking to you now more corpses have been recovered from houses and bushes around,” he added

The leader of the Fulani in Southern Kaduna, Alhaji Abdulhamid Musa, alleged that locals were in the habit of carrying out jungle justice against his people whenever something happened in Southern Kaduna.

He cited the incident of a boy simply identified as Aminu who was caught cutting fresh Mango leaves for his cattle when the people of Zunuruk and Tsonje, on the border of Jema’a and Kaura local governments on Monday attacked him.

“When the boy defended himself and in the process hit one of the attackers with his stick, they went and invited their people who overpowered and killed him. They kept attacking the cows and killed 16 and poisoned some, Twenty five cows are still missing.”
