Seven Killed by Gunmen in Kaduna Fresh Attack
Gunmen in Kaduna State attacked Gbaja in the Katarma District of the Chikun Local Government Area and killed seven persons while four sustained varying degrees of injuries.
Such attacks have started since last week.
The state commissioner for internal security and home affairs, Mr Samuel Aruwan, who confirmed the incident on Tuesday, also said in a statement obtained by Nigerian Sketch that gunmen suspected to be kidnappers, in a separate raid, abducted four persons in the local government.
Aruwan listed those killed by the bandits as Samson Hassan, Nuhu Hassan, Ali Hassan, Tsoho Wasa, Gabriel Ahmadu, Dogara Sarki and Shekwolo Yohanna.
The commissioner listed four persons that were injured as Zamai Pada, Nuhu Bulus, Bani Sarki as well as Isa’ac Danjuma.
Similarly, in another attack at Unguwar Tagwaye Doka in the Kuriga Ward, three herders were killed.
According to him, the three herders kidnapped are Buhari Mika’il, Binta Auwal and Maryam Wada.
Aruwan said security operatives had since launched an investigation into the various incidents and that the government awaited their reports.
Aruwan’s statement read in part: “Residents of the Katarma area of the Chikun Local Government have informed the Kaduna State Government that bandits have killed seven persons in a location called Gbaja.
“The Kaduna State Government has also received reports that bandits attacked Unguwar Tagwaye Doka in Kuriga Ward also of Chikun LGA, and kidnapped three herders identified as Buhari Mika’il, Binta Auwal and Maryam Wada.”
“Security agencies are conducting investigations at these locations, and the Kaduna State Government awaits official reports and other details on the incidents.
“Citizens will be updated on these and other security developments across the state.”
