Twenty three [23] shot dead in renewed community gunmen attack

While the country is still reeling in shock over the Abuja train attack that led to the death of nine Nigerians and abduction of several others, no fewer than 23 other Nigerians lost their lives on Tuesday when bandits again struck two communities in Giwa Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Reports say the bandits injured many other persons as they shot sporadically during the attacks on the communities.

A resident within the area said the bandits came in large number, wielding dangerous weapons and forcing the people to scamper for safety.

The resident said: “Villages attacked by the gunmen included Anguwar Maiwa and Anguwar Kanwa. The bandits attacked the villages around 1am on Tuesday.

“The bandits were seen regrouping on motorbikes as early as 5pm on Monday evening and security agents were duly informed,” the local alleged.

The state police command was yet to react at the time of filing this report.
