Seven persons have been killed in fresh attacks in Birnin Gwari and Kachia local government areas of Kaduna State.

The state’s Commissioner for Internal Security and Homeland Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday.

The statement was based on an operational feedback to the state government by the security forces operating in the state.

Samuel Aruwan said the armed bandits invaded Bagoma village, Birnin Gwari LGA in Kaduna, and killed six persons.

He listed the six killed as:

– Bala Gwamna

– Kasage Ali

– Mai Jakki

– Makeri Kugu

– Haruna Kawu

– Ali Agaji

One person, Salisu Gwamna, older brother of the deceased Bala Gwamna, was also injured in the attack.

He said the armed bandits also killed one in Amfu village in Kachia LGA.

Aruwan identified the lady killed as Mrs. Rahila Dauda.

In another event, the partially burnt corpse of a seven-year-old, Abubakar Sarki Musa was found in an uncompleted building in the Hayin Danmani area, Rigasa, Igabi LGA.

One Saddique Umar, an 18-year-old resident of the area, confessed to killing him, after luring the boy into the deserted building in a bid to steal a phone placed in his possession.

However, Governor Nasir El-Rufai condemned the various attacks in the state on Sunday.

The Governor prayed for the repose of the souls of the slain in all the attacks.

He also wished the injured victim a speedy recovery.
