Bandits Attack Kaduna Community, Kill Six, Injure Eight

Bandits have killed six people and injured eight others in an attack on the Ambe community in Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

 

It was gathered that the incident occurred on Sunday night, May 5, 2024.

 

The injured were said to have been rushed to the FMC Keffi in Nasarawa State and General Hospital, Gwantu, Kaduna for treatment.

 

The youth leader of the community, Micah Aude, who confirmed the attack on Monday said the attackers invaded the community on motorbikes and opened fire on a particular house where a birthday celebration was taking place, but nobody was killed except those sitting around some shops.

 

Micah further disclosed that the locals were able to apprehend one of the attackers who rode one of the motorcycles but could not be identified.

 

“We immediately handed over the attacker, who was apprehended, to the authorities for prompt action because we were rushing those injured to the hospital for medical attention at the time. Security operatives have been drafted to the community, and normalcy has returned and we are about to bury the six victims,” he added.

 

Daniel Amos, a federal lawmaker representing the Jema’a/Sanga federal constituency, confirmed the incident in a statement on Monday in Kaduna.
