How Fulani terrorists killed 23 Christian, burn houses in Kaduna fresh attack

In a renewed attack on Southern Kaduna, gunmen who stormed Maraban Agban community at Kagoro in Kaura local government area of Kaduna State have killed 23 residents and burnt 50 houses. And to avert breakdown of law and order the state government has imposed 24 hours curfew on two local government areas.

The attackers in large numbers invaded the village and shot sporadically at anybody at sight and burnt houses and their occupants, eyewitnesses said.

One of the eyewitnesses who preferred anonymity said the attackers came in motorcycles and Hilux vehicles and disappeared after carrying out their mission in a coordinated manner.

Meanwhile, following a protest and the blocking of roads by youths of the area, the state government acting on the advice of security agencies has imposed a 24-hour curfew in Jema’a and Kaura local government areas with immediate effect.

The commissioner for internal security and home affairs, Samuel Aruwan, disclosed this in a statement he issued yesterday in Kaduna.

He said the decision was based on the advice from security agencies.

In the brief statement, Aruwan said, “The Kaduna State government has declared a 24-hour curfew in Jema’a and Kaura local government areas with immediate effect. This is to assist the security agencies to stabilise the situation in the areas, save life and property and enable the restoration of law and order.”

The commissioner said security agencies have full authorisation to enforce the curfew and appealed to all residents of Jema’a and Kaura local government areas to cooperate with the security agencies in the task of restoring peace and upholding law and order.

The government condemned the violence and all acts of lawlessness that have occurred in the area.

He said further updates would be issued as necessary.

Reacting to the killing, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Kaduna State chapter in a statement issued by its state chairman Rev John Joseph Hayab expressed sadness and grief over what it described as “the continued killings, kidnappings, banditry, and the unimaginable evil going on in our state unabated without any substantial action by the government and security forces.”

“One only needs to see how human beings are killed and roasted by bandits who attacked Kagoro to conclude that this is one loss too many. How long will this evil continue and when will our leaders act dutifully?

“Kaduna State citizens are tired of government’s rhetorical responses without concrete action taken to protect lives and property,” he said.

In another reaction, Barrister Sunday Marshal Katung (SMK), a senatorial aspirant from Southern Kaduna, said the bloodletting was an avoidable one.

“Again, we woke up to the sad news of an attack on a community in Kagoro, Kaura LGA. Countless condemnations from individuals and duty bearers have trailed several of these attacks without eliciting the required respite for the vulnerable people that have become victims. More fatalities keep being recorded and more displacement witnessed.

“These grim cycles of repeated attacks have come to define, in pathetic terms, the fear and anxiety that some of our communities have come to live with”.

Similarly, Senator Shehu Sani on his verified Facebook page said, “The atrocious attacks and butchery of helpless people by terrorists at Marraban Agban community in Kagoro is tragic and condemnable. This is a crime against humanity. This mindless bloodletting and extermination campaign by terrorists must stop. The government and security agencies must wake up to their responsibility.”
