At least five people have been killed by gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen in an early morning attack on Fadan Karshi village in Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State, on Friday, July 18.
The latest attack comes less than a month after about 200 people were killed in seven communities within the
same local government.
The Local Government Chairman, Mr Emmanuel Adamu told Channels Television on telephone, that the
gunmen stormed the village at about 4:45am and started shooting at people and in the process killed five natives and injured many others.
Those who could run were able to escape the onslaught, leaving the weak and aged who fell victims of the attack.
Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State, has witnessed so many violent attacks by suspected Fulani
herdsmen since the beginning of this year.
In the meantime, the council chairman said soldiers have been drafted to the area to beef up security in the area.
