Again, Fulani herdsmen have launched attacks on at least five villager and displaced residents of seven communities in Kaduna State.
From 19th to 24th May, the armed herdsmen attacked Idazau, Etissi, Bakin Kogi, Dutsen Gora, UN Gora, Pushu Kallah and Magunguna villages. They left 5 persons dead, 78 injured, destroyed 607 houses and rustled 231 cows in their wake.
It was also gathered that at least 51 people are missing after the attacks. A resident revealed that they are scared of going back to claim their dead as their villages are still occupied by the herdsmen.
Some churches such as the Catholic Church in Idazau, ECWA in Etiissi, ECWA in Bakin Kogi and ECWA in Magunguna were reported burnt to the ground during the attacks.
