JUST IN: Bandits kill 32, destroy houses in fresh Kaduna attack.

No fewer than 32 people have been reportedly killed by bandits in separate attacks on four communities within Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The affected communities are Ungwan Gamu, Dogon Noma, Ungwan Sarki and Maikori.

The police are yet to confirm the incident, but the District Head of Kufena, Titus Dauda , told Channels Television that the attacks occurred on Sunday and that 32 people lost their
lives while a church and several houses were destroyed in the process.

He added that the bandits in their large numbers first attacked Dogon Noma in the early hours of Sunday morning, and killed several people, mostly men , before proceeding to Ungwan
Gamu and Maikori villages where they also killed people and burnt down houses.

The district head further disclosed that the victims have been laid to rest while the affected communities have been deserted by the residents due to fear of being attacked.

A resident of one of the communities, also claimed that a helicopter was seen shooting at the residents from the air, while the remaining bandits were on ground to attack any fleeing
residents.

However, a top security source countered the claim, saying that the military engaged the bandits both by ground and air, adding that this eventually forced the bandits to retreat.

LAGOS STATE

 

Lagos: Tension in Jakande Isolo as residents burn bikes after fatal accident.

There is tension around the Jakande Estate at Isolo, Isheri Road, and environs in Lagos.

On Thursday, a motorcycle (okada) rider hit a passerby who died within a few minutes.

In a swift reaction, residents trooped out in anger and attacked bikes plying the routes.

The protesters set a number of them on fire. The operators are now avoiding the area for their safety.

The police have assured that officers are on ground to ensure the safety of lives and normalcy in activities.

Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin confirmed that the rider “veered off the road and hit a pedestrian”.

“Unfortunately, the pedestrian fell and died on the spot. People around decided to lynch the motorcycle rider.”

The spokesman said the police arrived at the scene on time and rescued the accused from the lynching.

A team of officers then took him to the hospital for treatment and evacuated the deceased.

Hundeyin added that before the police returned, “an angry mob was already burning the motorcycles left behind by the fleeing riders.

“The Lagos State Police Command condemns jungle justice in very strong terms”, he said.

The PPRO warned that anyone found engaging in such would be dealt with in accordance with the law.

Roundabout, destroying some buildings.”

He added that the fire lasted for hours with unsuccessful attempts by residents to put it out. He added that it affected some shops around Gada Biyu motor park.

Dang said, “A lifeless body (Buba) was later discovered in a gutter in the morning with speculation that it could be the driver of the tanker

“Infact, the saving grace is that the incident occured at the time when most people had closed for business of the day as such there was no serious casualty which would have been
if it happened during the day.”
