The killed victims in the Sunday attack in Adama Gindin Dutse community, Doka, in Kufana District of Kajuru LGA of Kaduna State, have been given a mass burial because they were burnt beyond recognition.

Meanwhile, survivors yesterday recounted their ordeals, saying the attackers burnt victims after killing them.

Daily Trust reported on Monday how bandits invaded the community around 6am on Sunday, killing the villagers and setting their houses on fire.

Some of the survivors who narrated how they escaped from the attackers when the Agon Kufana, Mr Titus Dauda, and the Chairman of the LGA visited the area on Monday, described the attack as terrible.

Pastor Anthony Peter said, “This is a remote village, and as far as we are concerned, they only came to wipe the community completely with the way they killed and set people’s bodies on fire.”

He appealed to Governor Uba Sani to deploy more security to the area, as well as provide food assistance to the affected villagers.

A vigilante in the community whose father was killed by the bandits, Yona Yunusa, said, “I escaped and hid inside our animals’ hut to make calls, and the soldiers responded immediately, which made the bandits leave the area.” 

The state government, through the Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, on Sunday, condemned the attack and directed the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) to provide assistance to the victims.
