Nine people have been confirmed killed and others are still missing in an attack on Tudun Doka, a Christian-dominated community in southern Kaduna, northern part of Nigeria.
Residents said the assailants were “Fulani herdsmen,” a jihadist terrorist group that has killed more than 6,000 people in Nigeria since 2015.
“We were just waking up when the herdsmen came around 5am. They came with weapons and started chopping people to death,” Rifkatu Hassan told SaharaReporters.
The attack on Wednesday morning came just 4 days after gunmen attacked and kidnapped five people from the village of Gutarrindna in Niger State.
On May 27, 2020, an attack by armed herders left at least 74 people dead in villages in Sokoto. Among those killed were women and children.
Residents always complain that government security forces refuse to respond and turn to their aide during the terrorist attacks.
