Four villages in Sanga Local Government have come under attacks in the past two months.
A fresh attack by suspected Fulani gunmen on Gimi Dogara village in Sanga Local Government Area has claimed four lives with 15 houses burnt down.
The attack, which was launched around 11 p.m. on Thursday night, left the villagers scampering to different directions for safety.
The Chairman of the Local Government, Emmanuel Adamu, who confirmed the incident, expressed sadness over the development and described the attack as “retrogressive”.
Mr. Adamu said the frequent attacks were undermining the peace building process initiated by the council.
He reiterated his appeal to the attackers to bury the hatchet and embrace peace as the pathway to progress.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Aminu Lawal, said that he was yet to be briefed on the alleged incident.
About four villages in Sanga Local Government have come under separate attacks in the past two months.
