At least 34 people killed in Northwest Nigeria attack

Close to 34 people have lost their lives and seven others injured after an attack in Northwest Nigeria.

The incident occurred yesterday around 4 pm while governors from the northern region were in Kaduna, discussing insecurity and other socio-economic matters affecting the area.

According to Kaduna Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs Samuel Aruwan, the unidentified gunmen attacked Madamai Village in Kaura local government.

“The troops mobilized to the location and also came under fire, before forcing the assailants to withdraw after an intense exchange. Some houses were set ablaze by the attackers at one end of the village,” the official said.

Kaduna State Governor El-Rufai confirmed that the local government will cater for the treatment of those wounded.

For the moment, Mr Yusuf Mugu, a lawmaker in the Kaduna State House of Assembly, has urged the embattled state government to bring drones into play to stop the attacks.

“It is saddening that in this era of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) where modern equipment like drones can be used to end the attacks, the unfortunate incident continued unabated.

I plead with authorities concerned to deploy drones, identify flash areas and engage this fearless armed militia that had been killing innocent people in our rural communities.”
