Kaduna – Bandits on Saturday night killed 17 people in Unguwar Wakili community in the Zango Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The local government authorities said 10 corpses were immediately recovered from the community after the attack and declared a 24-hour curfew on Ungwan Juju, Mabuhu, Ungwan Wakili and Zangon Urban.
Speaking to newsmen, the council chairman, Zango Kataf Local Government, Mr Francis Sani Zimbo, condemned the barbaric attack.
He said investigations had commenced to fish out the perpetrators and bring them to book.
The Chairman said there was a report that all the mobile police checkpoints within the affected communities were withdrawn before last night’s attack.
The locals who spoke on the issue wondered how an attack would last for 40 minutes without any of the attackers being killed by the security operatives even with the presence of an operating base within the community.
The latest attack was said to be a reprisal to the killing of a Fulani herder four days earlier in Ungwan Juju. (vitalnewsngr.com)
