While the rest of the country is enjoying a level of peace to an extent, despicable violence and civil unrest is still going on Southern Kaduna.
Many sons and daughters whose aged parents still reside in the villages there, have been very vocal about it online but it seems to have not gotten the needed attention as the killings over there are increasing by the day.
Few days ago, about 21 people were killed in Kukum Daji village located close to Kaura Local Government Area according to Sahara Reporters.
Few days ago as well, at least 10 persons including a pastor of the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA), Shamah Kuyet Ishaya, were killed by gunmen during an attack on Zipkak community in Jama’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State. This makes it over 30 people left dead within a week!
A resident was reported to have said that the attackers numbering about 20 and armed with AK47 rifles, stormed the community on motorcycles around 6:30pm on Friday, shooting sporadically.
He said the gunmen were communicating with one another in Fulani language.
“There was a rumour three days ago that the community would be attacked. The villagers immediately called an emergency sitting. It was while the community meeting was ongoing that the attacked occurred. People were running in different directions, confused and wailing.
“So far, we have recovered 10 bodies. The associate pastor that was shot dead just concluded his marriage rites last week Saturday…”
