The state’s Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, who confirmed the incident in a statement in Kaduna, said bandits escaping a military offensive in Kajuru local government area of the state killed the herdsman on Friday.

According to him, the bandits opened fire on the herdsman and carted away his motorcycle and other valuables.

He said security operatives are on the trail of the bandits while the deceased’s corpse had been retrieved and handed over to his family for burial in accordance with Islamic rites.

Aruwan said: “The assailants were responsible for the killing and kidnapping in the Kasuwan Magani and Doka general areas and other locations in Kauru local government area.
