The Police in Kaduna on Sunday confirmed that gunmen attacked Zankan village, a Fulani settlement in Kaura Local Government of the state.

The spokesperson of the Kaduna Police, Aliyu Usman, said in Kaduna that the incident occurred at about 8.30 p.m. on Saturday.

He said one person was killed and five others injured in the attack.

“The dead and the injured persons have been taken to the nearest medical centre in Ganawuri town, Plateau State,” Mr. Usman said.

He, however, said that investigation into the incident had commenced.

“We are trailing the suspects behind the attack, but so far, no arrest has been made.

“We are, however, optimistic that the additional police operatives deployed in the area will fish out the culprits very soon,” he said.

The spokesman reiterated the commitment of the command to secure citizens and property in the state, saying “we will not allow lawlessness to thrive.”

He appealed to the public to always assist security agencies in the state with useful information to enable them to take proactive measures.

      “the satanic pastors that defies Jesus by instigate their followers to kill thereby pushing them into a losing battle. Ask the people of Plateau if peace is not imfortant.”

      What a grammatical blunder! See what the terrorist organization called Islam has done to your English. Hope you will not blame it on your nemesis, the pastors and the Christian community. So terrible!

      • amazing2012

        English is a language of slaves not a measure of intelligence or success. Jesus is never an english and will never be. Fools that enslaves themselves under Chinese, Indians, Lebenese and Japanese because of color not honor.
        The satanic pastors are Pastor Suleman and Adeboye. They suppose to encourage peace not violence. Unfortunately violence is exactly what they keep preaching secretly and now it has come out openly. S/Kaduna should seek peace with their neighbors !

        • Watch man

          Oh, so you have become a slave also? And your blood-thirsty terrorist organization, Islam, has not been able to deliver you? Oh, ohhh, so sorry!

        • Paul Irumundomon

          The only way to seek peace, is when the government gives equal ak47, to both christians as they give the Muslim fulanis. You can’t tie the hands of one man, and expect him to fight a good fight. No one Nigerian have this boldness, to go on a killing mode, there is no one of us, who when pushed against the wall, that would not fight back.

          • amazing2012

            is it your openion or jesus position?

            What has opinion/God got to do with this topic

          Your father. Imbecile

  • Watch man

    Now that it appears that Fulani people are victims, some christians are bound to be arrested and would likely be prosecuted.

    First time media will report attack on Fulani.Everytime it is “Fulani attack this, Fulani attack that”. Newspaper hardly report atrocities against Fulanis also.We must be honest & fair in assessing issues & not just have straight jacket mentality.

    • Paul Irumundomon

      Because these fulanis will visit them with ak47, they are afraid. Nigeria government of todsy, has armed these people with ak47.

      • Mufu Ola

        Same straight jacket mentality I’m saying.

    • Rominiyis

      The objectivity needed in reality is in the use of Fulani instead of herdsmen. The press are not bias, the reality is that it is the herdsmen that are always the aggressor and trespasser by nature. The nature of their business required them to have ranch and grow feeds or buy them for their cattle. There are requirements for every business just as mechanic required tools to work as farmers inherit, buy or lease land and are not allowed to encroach on other farmers land.

      Here are some fact. I will not use the word Fulani because it is unfair to ascribe this issue to all Fulani. Matter of fact the word Fulani generalization only help the militant herdsmen some who are migrant drovers. Not all herdsmen are Fulani and not all Fulani are herdsmen. Many minority ethnic groups in West Africa also rear cattle as a form of business. They are also called Fulani because of the fact that they rear cattle and cattle unite them under one categorization. Note that the problem is assuming a religion dimension because herdsmen are Muslims even if some don’t practice the religion and again it is a well known that not all Muslim are herdsmen.

  • Paul Irumundomon

    Fulanis thinks they have monopoly of buying ak47, somebody else, just found out where these weapons are sold.

    The terrorists are acting the script of their Godfather, ‘Apostle’ Johnson Sulaiman
