Five Persons Killed In Kaduna Fresh Attacks

At least five persons have been killed in separate attacks by gunmen in Zango-Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, confirmed the incidents on Saturday.

A ten-year-old herder was among those killed in the attacks carried out around the Maduachi Forest while another resident was also killed in Kurmin-Masara along Bakin Kogi in Atyap chiefdom.

The assailants also attacked the Jankasa General Area Ground – the boundary between Zangon Kataf and Kaura Local Government – and shot one man dead on his farm.

Ungwan Rana in Zonzon District was also attacked with a resident dying from gunshot wounds just as one other person lost his life at Ungwan Gaiya Village.

The assailants were later repelled by a combined team of Operation Safe Haven and the Police Tactical Squad.

Meanwhile, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has suspended its Southeast sit-at-home order scheduled to begin tomorrow, Monday.

Recall that IPOB had ordered for a sit-at-home to be observed every Monday throughout the southeast region, starting from August 9, until IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, is released from prison.

Naija News reports that the pro-Biafra group suspended its sit-at-home due to the National Examination Council (NECO) examination for junior secondary schools.

The group stated that a new date for the commencement of the sit-at-home order would be announced later.

Giving reasons for the suspension, Nnamdi Kanu’s brother, Kanunta, said it suspended the order after listening to pleas from well-meaning individuals and groups.
