Five killed, others injured in another attack in Kaduna village
Armed bandits have struck in another community in Southern Birnin-Gwari local government area of Kaduna State, killing five people.
DAILY POST reports that seven others were injured, while three of them are in critical condition.
The armed bandits had on Sunday evening killed three persons and abducted a woman nursing a baby, and many others.
The chairman, Birnin-Gwari Vanguards for Security and Good Governance, Ibrahim Abubakar Nagwari in a statement said that the merciless gunmen overran Kurigi village in Kakangi ward in Birnin-Gwari local government.
He added that due to remoteness of the area and the proximity to border with Zamfara State, the news of the killings was not available.
“The five people killed at Kurigi village were buried yesterday evening under heavy guards by security and vigilantes around 5.00pm on Monday.
“The armed bandits killed four people at once while the fifth person died on the way to Brinin Gwari general hospital,” Ibrahim said.
He called the attention of the federal government on the need to deploy more security forces to Birnin-Gwari to prevent influx of armed bandits escaping military onslaught in Zamfara State.
