Unknown gunmen in the early hours of today killed five people,
injuring one other at Fadan Karshi village in Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
Fadan Karshi is among seven communities in Sanga local government that were attacked by gunmen last month, killing about 200.
A resident said the gunmen invaded the community, moving from one house to another shooting. He said the shooting resulted to the killing of five people while several others are currently displaced.
“Many people ran out of that community during the previous attacks. Just few days ago, some of them returned, only for this attack to take place again. The gunmen came with sophisticated weapons, shooting and chanting. The other person that was injured is now receiving treatment at the hospital,” a resident said.
Chairman of the local government Emmanuel Adamu Dan-Zaria, who confirmed the incident, described the latest attack as unfortunate.
“We are still confused about what is happening in our local government. Not up to a month that about 200 people were killed with over 27,000 people displaced, five people have now been killed today (yesterday) morning with a lot of people displaced again,” Dan-Zaria said.
