Three people were killed and eight others wounded by unknown gunmen on Sunday in an attack at Bitaro village of Kwoi in Jaba local government area in Southern Kaduna.
The villagers said gunmen surrounded their homes and opened fire on the Christian village.
A survivor said, “It was in the early hours of Sunday when they attacked us in our sleep. They surrounded our houses and in the course of the raiding killed three of our people, and injured about eight persons. We don’t know why they attacked us but they virtually seem to be headmen who are on a mission.”
State police commissioner Balla Nasarawa confirmed it, but did not give further details. He said no arrests have been made so far.
