Kaduna Massacred : 50 Villagers, 254 Houses, 7 Churches Destroyed – Royal Father  Cries Out


The Royal Father of Atyap Chiefdom, Zangon Kataf local government area of Kaduna State, Agwatyap Dominic Gambo Yahaya has cried out against incessant attacks by suspected herdsmen.


He said the militia/bandits have in the last few days killed no fewer than 50 villagers, destroyed 254 homes and 7 churches in the Atyap Chiefdom within two months.


The Agwatyap in a statement he personally issued, explained that the unrestrained violence unleashed on poor, defenceless, innocent farmers of Atyap land had reached a sorry state that no farmer can venture out to the farmland, as the chances of returning home alive were very slim.


The paramount ruler noted that he found the recurring attacks most distressful and disturbing, saying that the alleged killers were known to have lived among the communities, as they always called the victims out by their names, to notify them of their mission to kill before committing the dastardly acts on the helpless farmers.
