An unconfirmed number of residents have been killed following attacks on villages across Giwa LGA of Kaduna state.

Samuel Aruwan, Kaduna commissioner for internal security and home affairs, confirmed the development in a statement issued on Friday.

Aruwan said while the number of fatalities has not been confirmed, some residents were also abducted.

“Some citizens have been killed by bandits in six villages of Giwa LGA. The attacks occurred between Thursday and the early hours of today,” the statement reads.


“The affected villages are Dillalai, Barebari, Dokan Alhaji Ya’u, Durumi, Kaya and Fatika.

“An unspecified number of locals were also kidnapped.

“The Kaduna State Government is still awaiting a full report of the attacks and will make this public as soon as details are received from security forces.”


The development comes days after 37 people were killed in attacks across Kaura and Jema’a LGAs of the state.

Following the attacks, the state government had declared 24-hour curfew in both LGAs.

The curfew has, however, been relaxed.
