Suspected Herdsmen Kill 3, Raze Houses In Kaduna Villages

Suspected herdsmen have killed three persons in Dogon Daji community and torched part of Antang Village, near Godogodo in Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The  Godogodo axis has been under intense siege of alleged herdsmen since July.

According to the residents of the affected villages, the itinerant herdsmen  have been forcing them out of their communities, claiming that their farmlands have been designated as Grazing Reserves by the government.

The council’s Acting  Chairman Humble Katuka who confirmed the raids, said that only two were killed in Dogon Daji and two houses burnt in Antang.

He said: “Report reaching me said that two people were killed in Dogon Daji, and then they burnt two houses in Atang.

“They diverted the attention of the police and soldiers stationed in Godogodo and sneaked to these areas to wreak havoc. But, security have been beefed up and I shall personally go there later to inspect what has happened.”

However, a source from Dogon Daji said: “This morning (yesterday), a group of herdsmen attacked our village (Dogon Daji). They killed three people. And injured about six others. I am not sure, because we have to move out women and children. Then, the armed herdsmen moved to Antang and burnt part of the village and injured some people.”
