About fifty people were killed while unspecified number of persons were abducted when bandits attacked nine communities in Giwa Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

ASP Mohammed Jalinge, Police Public Relations Officer in the state,  who confirmed the incident, said the command is yet to compile the actual number of deaths recorded during the invasion.

“We are still waiting for the full details of the incident from the Divisional Police Officer, Giwa and the Area Commander Zaria,” he said.
