19 Killed, Many Missing As Bandits invaded Kaduna Community.

No fewer than 19 persons have been confirmed dead after bandits invaded Kutemeshi Community in the Birnin-Gwari area of Kaduna State.

The bandits, who attacked the community on Saturday, operated for over two hours as they shot indiscriminately at residents of the community.

A resident of the community, who confirmed the attack to SaharaReporters, said several calls to security agencies were unattended to, leaving the people at the mercy of the bandits.

He said only a few volunteer vigilantes responded to the emergency calls after the bandits had retreated to the bush.

Bashir Lawal, who narrowly escaped death, said, “Early Sunday morning, 19 people were confirmed dead, while several others were injured and many people still missing. Those killed are set for burial.

“We called several times for security reinforcements, but only a handful of volunteer vigilantes came after the bandits had retreated to the bush around 7 pm yesterday.

“In recent days, armed bandits had displaced thousands of people from different communities in various parts of Birnin-Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State.”
