Terrorists have reportedly killed 32 people in an attack on four communities in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna state.
The incident, according to the President of the Adara Development Association (ADA), Awemi Maisamari, occurred on Sunday.
He said the affected communities include, Ungwan Gamu, Dogon Noma, Ungwan Sarki and Maikori villages.
He said the decomposed corpses of the corpses of those killed were recovered on Wednesday in the bushes.
Maisamari said, “The attack started around 12noon (on Sunday) and lasted until around 6pm unchallenged by the state.
The terrorists were said to have burnt houses in Maikori village while the ECWA church in Dogo Noma was also razed down.
Maisamari alleged that the attacks were “carried out by Fulani terrorists who were riding on many motorcycles.”
He said, “Each motorcycle carried people armed with AK47. When came they the villagers mobilized to repel them at Maikori village but they couldn’t with stand their fire power.
“There was no way poorly villagers could face the terrorists who were well armed”, Maisamari said.
According to him, many of those killed were women and children.
He added that the burial of some of the victims which took place Monday was disrupted as the terrorists were sighted in nearby bushes.
Maisamari said, “Many people are still missing and some of them are believed to have been abducted by the assailants.
“So far, not contacts have been made. The attacked has caused serious panick leading to the displacement of thousands of people in the area.
“Most of the displaced persons, especially women and children are still relocating to places like Katul Crossing, Kachia, Idon and Maraban Kajuru.
“The attack has compounded the already very bad humanitarian situation in Kajuru LGA because Kutura Station and other neighbouring villages were similarly destroyed and displaced on April 8, 2022…
“We are calling on government and other people of conscience to come to the aid of our displaced and dehumanized people”.
