Suspected Fulani militias kill 15, injure three, burn houses in Southern Kaduna

Suspected Fulani militias have attacked Ma-Dooh village in Atyap Chiefdom in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State and killed about 15 persons.

Reports reaching DAILY POST said houses were burned down by the suspected Fulani militias and three persons are now in the hospital receiving treatment as a result of the attack.

A source from the village said the suspected Fulani militias stormed the village at about 11 pm and unleashed their illicit act on the innocent people that were all asleep.

The source explained, “Most of us had to run for our dear lives hearing the kind of sound of sophisticated weapons that were used. I strongly believe the type of sophisticated weapons that the suspected Fulani militias used are not in the hands of our security personnel in the country.

“Most of us slept in unknown places last night in order to save our dear lives to be able to face the future. The type of sound of the weapons was so terrifying that no one can explain where these types of weapons come from.”


The source further explained that the military personnel in the morning have taken over the village to protect the people against any further attack.

He appealed to the federal and Kaduna State governments to immediately do something to save the lives of the people and the country as a whole from suspected Fulani militias freely attacking to kill, maim and do all kinds of destruction that is not expected of a right thinking person.
