Not less than six people have been reportedly killed and several others injured in fresh attack in Kaguru village of Kaduna state by suspected herdsmen.
Armed herdsmen attacked the village on Wednesday night, one of the villagers said.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Mukhtar Aliyu, confirmed the attack, saying the gunmen invaded the community while the villagers were asleep, killing six persons.
Aliyu said, “The hoodlums invaded the community when the residents went to bed after which they started shooting indiscriminately and burning down houses before the arrival of security operatives.
“More troops have been deployed to the affected region, while those that sustained injuries were taken to Birnin Gwari General Hospital for urgent medical treatment.”
