No fewer than 100 people were reported killed by gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen yesterday in three villages in Kaura Local Government Area in the southern part of Kaduna State.
The attackers, reported to have arrived in large numbers and armed with guns, knives, machetes and other dangerous weapons, invaded Ugwar Sankwai, Ungwar Gata and Chenshyi villages in the early hours of yesterday, shooting sporadically and setting houses ablaze.
The attacks followed closely on the heels of similar attacks on several communities in the neighbouring Katsina State by rampaging gunmen, which claimed 117 lives, injured 37 and displaced 708 persons.
