Many people are feared dead after gunmen were said to have attacked Kajuru Local Government Area (LGA) in Kaduna.

The attack is coming less than a month after an earlier attack on the area, in which scores of persons lost their lives.

A statement by the Kaduna State government, issued by its spokesman, Samuel Aruwan, read: “The Kaduna State Government has today received the sad news of renewed attacks in Kajuru and Kachia local government areas. The government condemns this recourse to violence and calls on all communities to support the efforts to restore calm in the area.

“Today, the Kaduna State Government was briefed by security agencies of renewed attacks in Kajuru local government area, and in parts of neighbouring Kachia LGA. The Kaduna State Government has been assured that the security agencies are working assiduously to contain the situation.

“The Government is saddened by these attacks, condemns the perpetrators and urges all residents of the area to support the security agencies in their efforts to protect communities.”
