Terrorists have continued to create fear in the hearts of residents of Kaduna State.

Just last Sunday, March 20, 2022, Kaduna State Government confirmed that terrorists killed at least 34 people during an attack on the Kaura local government area of the state.

“The terrorists, who seem to be on a genocidal mission, appeared again in the Giwa Local Government Area of the state where they killed at least 50 persons,” according to a report in Daily Trust.

“They also abducted an unspecified number of people.

The terrorists, it was reported, moved across nine communities in Giwa and kill unchallenged.

ASP Mohammed Jalinge, Police Public Relations Officer in the state, who confirmed the incident, said the command is yet to compile the actual number of deaths recorded during the invasion.

“We are still waiting for the full details of the incident from the Divisional Police Officer, Giwa and the Area Commander Zaria,” Daily Trust quoted the Kaduna police spokesman.

The newspaper quoted a member of Vigilante Group in Dillalai area, Mansur Ibrahim, who said the terrorists burnt houses and vehicles, motorcycles and rustled away over 100 cows.

“The villages affected were Dillalai, Zango Tama, Kaya, Barebari, Anguwan Bakko, Gidan Alhajin Kida, Kadanya and Durumi among others.

“Dillalai was worst hit by the attack where about 15 people were reported to be killed, with five commercial trucks and five houses burnt.

“The bandits also burnt a church at Zangon Tama village, all in Giwa local government area,” he said.

Ibrahim said some of the victims who sustained gunshot injuries were receiving treatment at Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital Shika-Zaria.
