Unknown gunmen suspected to be bandits have attacked Ungwar Gankon village in Zango Kataf and Maro village, Kajuru Local Government Areas (LGA) of Kaduna state killing no fewer than eleven people.

The attacks carried out between Monday and Wednesday also left scores of people injured.

Only a few days ago, the Defence headquarters deployed Special Forces from the Nigerian Airforce and Army to southern Kaduna to address incessant killings in the region.

Confirming the attack, Chairman, Zango Kataf Local Government, Elias Manza alleged the onslaught was a revenge action by suspected Fulani militia.

He said the armed men invaded Ungwan Gankon community on Tuesday night and started shooting sporadically, killing two persons in the process and injuring many others.

He also said that eight houses were burnt by the attackers while the villagers have fled from the community for fear of a reprisal attack.
