Villages attacked by the gunmen included Anguwar Maiwa and Anguwar Kanwa. An eyewitness said the bandits attacked the villages around 1:00 am on Tuesday.

“The bandits were seen regrouping on motorbikes as early as 5pm Monday evening and security agents were duly informed.

“However, the bandits still proceeded to unleash their mayhem,” he said.

The eyewitness said 22 dead bodies had been discovered with the help of security operatives out of the 23 said to have been killed and subsequently buried.

He said the security operatives had also succeeded in neutralising some of the bandits and recovered some kidnapped victims.

“I cannot say how many were rescued, but I know some of them were rescued and bandits neutralised,” he stated.

The Kaduna State Police Command, Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalinge, was yet to be reached at the time of filing the report.
