Terrorists on Saturday attacked the Dogon-noma community in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State, kidnapping 15 women and one man.

A local, Istifanus, told newsmen that many residents of the village ran to neighbouring communities for safety when the hoodlums attacked and shot sporadically.

“We can only confirm the figure by evening when we’re able to access the village. The attackers invaded the village at 5.30 am on Saturday in large numbers, shooting indiscriminately.”

A former council boss, Cafra Caino said the number of the casualties could not be ascertained.

“We are yet to get the number of casualties because the locals ran for their lives at the time the assailants invaded the community. The community had, sometime in 2019, come under heavy attack where 74 people were killed and the community recently has been experiencing attacks,” he said.

Meanwhile, the police command could not be reached to react to the incident.
