26 November 2016, 14:52

Kafanchan - Four persons were killed while several houses including the house of the village head were burnt, when unknown gunmen attacked Mile One Village in Tafan District, Kaduna State on Friday.

A resident, who preferred anonymity, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Kafanchan that the hoodlums launched an attack against the residents between 2 p.m. and 10p.m on Friday.

The Interim Chairman of Jema’a local Government Area, Dr Bege Katuka, confirmed the incident via telephone.

He said: “I just left the affected village barely 30 minutes ago, I was there to assess the extent of damage.’’

However, reports say the residents of the neighbouring villages of Gidan Waya, Ungwuan Ninzo and Ungwuan Kagoro have fled for fear of possible attacks.

The villages as well as Kaduna State College of Education have been turned to ghost towns.

NAN recalls that Pasakori Village which share boundaries with Mile One Village came under similar attack on Thursday.
