About 15 persons were reportedly killed at Ambe-Madaki village in Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State by suspected Fulani herdsmen at 4am on Friday.
A resident of the area, Yohana Adamu, told our correspondent that the invaders, who were armed with sophisticated weapons, arrived at the village at about 4am on Friday and started shooting sporadically and setting houses ablaze in the process.
He said scores of residents of the area sustained varying degrees of injuries from gun shots while over 20 houses in the area were set ablaze.
He said, “We are surprised that despite the agreement that our communities had with the Fulanis not to attack each other, they have been attacking us.”
“We have not compiled the casualty figure yet because some people are still missing, but we have 15 corpses already.”
The spokesman for the Kaduna State Police Command, DSP Aminu Lawan, could not be reached for comments, but a security source in Sanga, who is not authorised to speak to journalist, confirmed the latest attack.
