Breaking News: Bandits kill 23, abduct others in Kaduna villages


Attacks on Kaduna State have continued apace with some 23 persons killed on Tuesday night in two villages.

Several persons sustained gunshot wounds as the terrorists invaded two communities of Giwa Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

At the weekend, bandits attacked nine villages in the same local government, killing about 50 while several others were abducted.

Tuesday night’s attack was the fourth in the local government area since March.

A resident of the community told journalists yesterday that the bandits came in large numbers, shooting rapidly.

As a result, many people who ran for safety were hit by the bandits’ bullets.

Police spokesman Mohammed Jalige said he would contact the DPO in charge of Giwa and get back to our correspondent, but never did as at press time.

Kaduna State and the entire nation were still grappling with the train attack on Monday, and 24 hours earlier, the assault near the Kaduna airport, when the latest attack happened.
