Another round of violence and killings reportedly broke out in Tudu village in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State, on Wednesday, as unknown gunmen killed about nine people in a fresh attack.
Mr Cafra Caino, the Chairman of Kajuru local government area who spoke to newsmen after the attack said that the gunmen invaded the village around 5:00 am and started shooting sporadically, thereby forcing residents to scamper for safety.
Caino said nine people were shot dead in the attack by the bandits while many other victims who sustained varying degrees of injuries have been taken to the hospital for treatment.
“There was an attack by bandits on Tudu village in Agwala Dutse at about 5:00am today (Wednesday) and several people were killed and several others too sustained injuries,” he said.
As at the time of filing in this report, the Kaduna Police was yet to confirm the incident which came days after an attack on some communities in the same local government where 30 decomposed bodies of members of the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union were reportedly found in the bush.
