ABUJA, Nigeria — Suspected herdsmen and other terrorists killed 46 people in attacks in predominantly Christian areas of southern Kaduna state earlier this week, sources said.
Attacks by herdsmen and other terrorists on Malagum and Abun (Broni Prono) villages in Kaura County, also this week, left 38 people dead in the predominantly Christian communities, said Luka Biniyat, spokesman for the Southern Kaduna People’s Union.
“It is with a heavy heart and a deep sense of loss that we announce the gruesome, mass murder of not less that 38 harmless, unarmed villagers,” Biniyat said in a press statement. “The killings, which lasted long, started around 11 p.m. Sunday night. Not only were these, poor innocent citizens killed, but no less than 100 houses were also razed, with some victims burned alive.”
Volunteers were still combing the surrounding wilderness in search of missing persons and corpses, he said.
