In a spate of week, dozens of Nigerians have been maimed and murdered in brutal, cold and calculated fashions in Southern Kaduna communities in Kaduna State (North-Central Nigeria). The latest being gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen on Friday night attacked three communities in Jema’a and Kaura Local Government Areas of the Southern Kaduna area of Kaduna State and killed at least nine persons.
According to Punch, Eleven others were said to have sustained varying degrees of injuries during the attack which took place around 7pm.
Several houses were also razed during the attack on Zikpak, Ungwan Masara, in Fantsuam area of Jema’a LGA and Maraban Kagoro in Kaura LGA.
Following the attack, the state governor, Malam Nasir El-Rufai, on Friday night imposed a 24-hour-curfew on Jema’a and Kaura LGAs.
Meanwhile Nigerians on social media have called out the Kaduna State Government’s slow response to the massacres; calling for a proactive approach to halting the killings, tracking down and putting to book the perpetrators.
