No less than 808 people have been allegedly killed in the ongoing attacks on communities by suspected armed herdsmen in Southern Kaduna.
According to the Catholic Archdiocese of Kafanchan.
Following the incident the Vicar General of the diocese, Reverend Father Ibrahim Yakubu, said 53 villages have so far been attacked and 57 people injured.

Yakubu said, “Four local government areas have been attacked, with 808 people killed and 1,422 houses, 16 Churches, 19 shops, and one primary school destroyed.
“Unfortunately, our government both at the Centre and State levels have failed woefully”
The church as also requested for the government to look extensively into the attack while also demanding for immediate end to attacks in the area and compensation to all families that lost loved ones or property.
The Reverend Father also called on Southern Kaduna indigenes to remain steadfast in prayer, united, strong and never to cave in to the antics of our adversaries.
