Gunmen attack Kaduna villages, kill 38

Gunmen shot at people, including women and children, in two villages.


No fewer than 38 persons were killed on Monday night in separate attacks on two villages in Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna state.

The Council Chairman, Emmanuel Adamu, told journalists in Sanga that the attacks were carried out simultaneously.

Mr. Adamu said the gunmen unleashed mayhem on Ankpon Village in Nandu and Kabamu Village in Fadan Karshi, all of Numana district. He said the gunmen killed 38 persons including women and children.

“21 people were killed in Fadan Kashi while 17 killed in Nandu,” he said.

He described the incident as unfortunate

Mr. Adamu condoled with those who lost their loved ones during the attack and urged residents to remain calm.

He said security agencies are tracking the attackers while measures have been adopted to forestall recurrence.

In May, seven people were killed when gunmen attacked a police outpost at Fadan Karshi.

No group has claimed responsibility for the Monday night attack.

    Hehehehe terrorism activities had since resumed after a lull in activities countdown to the ekiti state gubernatorial election with which the Gambari Islamist terrorist sponsors used to measure the pulse of the Yoruba support for the Gambari born/ bomb to rule project. After realising that the Yoruba are not buying into the apc project terrorism activities have now resumed in full swing. Nigeria expires 2015

    The worst thing that could happen to any human being is to ‘taste’ the blood of another human being in any preventable war or scuffle. The Islamists have tasted human blood and I daresay, unfortunately, that many of them will continue to have this instinct to kill as way of satisfying the horrible sadism they have been inflicted with. And, of course, they will be killed somewhere along the line or they may die horrible deaths! I just cannot fathom how people who say their religion is peaceful are embroiled in criminality all the way. I am not a judge but such people are destined for Hell!
