By Godson Ikiebey-

Twenty persons were said to have been killed in a renewed attack by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Ungwan Aku village, Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

According to Punch, a source from the community said the attackers in military fatigue invaded the village at about 7pm on Monday, April 8, 2019.

The Punch report goes that the attackers who were armed with weapons including AK47 guns and machetes shot sporadically at anything on sight in the village. The source said:

“As they shot sporadically, some of us escaped into the bush. The attackers were in military uniforms and bullet-proof vests”.

The source went on to say that the police came into the village in eight Hilux vans but could not enter the bush to fish out the attackers.

The killings were confirmed by a former President of the Adara Development Association, Danladi Yarima.

Yarima who condemned the killings, accused the Kaduna state governor, Nasir el-Rufai of bias in the manner he has been handling the crisis in the area.

According to the report, the police were yet to confirm the attack.
