Fulani herdsmen on the rampage again in Southern Kaduna, according to eye witness reports, 17 people were killed in the unprovoked attacks in Gonan Rogo village late Tuesday around 11:30 pm.

A villager, Jonathan Yakubu was said to have been slaughtered and his entire family {wife and three kids} wiped out

The spokesperson for the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union, Luka Binniyat narrated the horrific events to the press,

He said, “We met relations of the Yakubu’s who were sobbing beyond consolation in front of the house Yakubu had built. “From this compound, trail of blood led to another gory scene of where Kauna Magaji was killed along with her daughter, Faith Magaji who died of grisly cutlasses cuts to their heads.”

“The killers went to another compound where they met Saraunia Lucky, 25, newly married and had given birth to her baby three months ago.

“With the baby cuddled in her arms in fear, she was shot dead and the bullet passed through the soft skull of the baby. But by some strange streak of luck, the baby survived and was rushed to a nearby hospital where a bullet was removed from its head.

He added, “When we visited the village, the baby was nursed by its auntie who also looked helpless. She told us that since the previous night, the baby had not had any milk but was only taking water. She said that where she could buy infant milk was under lockdown.”

Several others were also killed in the attacks including a 17-year-old known as ’Popular Teacher’ who was shot to death, a six-year-old John Paul, who was hacked to death, Asanalo Magaji 32, Yayo Magaji, 13, Paul Bawa, 27, Rahila, 25, and Mailafia Dalhatu, 60.

Yaro Dalhatu, 56, and his wife, Saratu, 45, their granddaughter, Blessing Yari, 14, was also killed.

Five more were killed as the villagers gathered to bury their dead the next morning.

“They are the same group that attacked the previous night, they came again this morning, sources said.

“The Fulani people who live in the communities all disappeared hours before the attack”.
