Alleged armed herdsmen between Saturday and Sunday killed not less than 20 persons after they lay a surprise siege on Godogodo, a semi-urban settlement, in Jema’a Local Government Area, LGA, of Kaduna State as at the time of going to press. The police and escapees said Godogodo was razed down with a tentative casualty figure of 20, apart from the injured.
