The gruesome killings in Kaduna State by suspected Fulani militia continued yesterday as no fewer than 30 persons were reportedly killed and three villages completely razed down in Zangan, zandyen and Azing villages in Kaura local government area of the state.
Although the incident has not been officially confirmed by the police in the state, Commissioner of Police, Mr. Olufemi Adenaike, pleaded with journalists to exercise patience till Wednesday (today) when he will address a press conference on the development.
The police boss said “please wait till tomorrow. I will address a press conference tomorrow to give you details, otherwise, you will be writing a half story. They information is coming in bits”.
However, a resident of the area, Bulus Gwaza, who spoke with journalists on phone from the area, said the gunmen came in their numbers and started shooting sporadically, thereby leading to confusion and pandemonium in the area.
“Right now, we have buried over 30 dead bodies and we are still looking for more in the three villages. Not a single house is standing now as I am speaking to you. They killed one policeman and one soldier. In fact the soldiers have to run because of the guns that they have and their numbers. There are (sic) nobody in these villages, except some of us looking for bodies to bury. Please tell government to come to our help”, Gwaza said.
