A fresh attack by suspected herdsmen has taken place in Kukum Daji Village of Kaura Local Government Area (LGA) of Kaduna State, leaving no less than 21 persons killed and several others injured.
Some gunmen were said to have carried out the attack in the southern part of the state on Sunday night.
The president of the community, Yashen Titus, told news outlets that the suspected armed herdsmen invaded the venue of a wedding party in the community at about 10 pm on Sunday night and opened fire on the people who attended the party.
According to him, 19 people died on the spot following the gun attack while two more persons died later at a hospital in the state.
He stated that the injured people were currently being treated at the Barau Dikko teaching hospital and other clinics in the state capital. The State Police Command is yet to confirm the incident.
The unending gun attacks in Kaduna villages has been a source of concern to many who are trying to combat the level of insecurity in the country. Just recently, on Sunday July 7th, 38 persons were reported killed when some gunmen attacked two villages in Sanga LGA of the state.
We hope the government looks into this barbaric act, and proffer a lasting impact solution to allow peace reign in the whole of the federation.
