22 Persons Lost Their Lives In Fresh Birnin Gwari Attack, In Kaduna
A source in Birnin Gwari said the gunmen stormed the village at about 7:00 pm and started shooting at residents who were running in all directions. A DailyTrust correspondent learnt that the shooting lasted for about an hour after which 20 persons were killed and several others wounded.
The source said when the gunmen were leaving, they were confronted by some men from the vigilante group, but the bandits, while fleeing, killed two of them.
“It was this morning that their remains were buried with the help of the presence of security agents,” he said.
Layin Maigwari was attacked in similar circumstances last year compelling many to flee the village.
The village is about 20 minutes drive from Birnin Gwari on the way to Funtua.
He promised to call back when he landed but had not done so at the time of filing this report.
