Gunmen Kill 11 Villagers In Kaduna Village
A group of unidentified gunmen killed at least 11 villagers and wounded many others in Nigeria’s northwestern state of Kaduna on Monday, said a local official.
The gunmen, suspected to be bandits, raided the village in large numbers, opening fire on residents of the Albasu village in the Igbabi Local Government Area of Kaduna, said Samuel Aruwan, a commissioner for Kaduna State Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs.
The gunmen also rustled flocks of cattle belonging to the locals, Aruwan said in a statement reaching Xinhua on Tuesday.
Banditry, kidnappings and other criminal activities have been rampant in the Nigerian region for years.
