Two people were reportedly killed in Dagwarga village, while 19 others were abducted in nearby Maraban Walijo in Kachia Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Daily Trust has gathered.

Speaking with our reporter on Tuesday, a resident of Dagwarga, Alhaji Abdullahi Abubakar, said the attack on Dagwarga by bandits appeared to be an act of revenge.

“The bandits attacked a remote area of Maraban Walijo on Sunday and abducted 19 residents. During the incident, one of the bandits was killed by the community. They returned on Monday for revenge, but due to the heavy security presence in Maraban Walijo, they attacked us in Dagwarga, which is a stone’s throw from Maraban Walijo,” he said.

The attackers, according to Abubakar, stormed Dagwarga village in large numbers around 2:00 a.m. on Monday and started shooting sporadically, instantly killing Alhaji Danlami Goni and Alhaji Auwalu Bawa.

“We have just buried the duo at Dagwarga cemetery according to Islamic rites as I am speaking to you,” Abubakar said.

The Kaduna Police Spokesman, Mansir Hassan, did not respond to calls at the time of filing this report.
