At least five persons have been reportedly killed in separate attacks by gunmen in Zango-Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Affairs, Samuel Aruwan confirmed the incidents to newsmen on Saturday, in Kaduna.
It was gathered that a ten-year-old herder was among those killed in the attacks carried out around the Maduachi Forest while another resident was also killed in Kurmin-Masara along Bakin Kogi in Atyap chiefdom.

It was learnt that the assailants also attacked the Jankasa General Area Ground – the boundary between Zangon Kataf and Kaura Local Government – and shot one man dead on his farm.

Ungwan Rana in Zonzon District was also attacked with a resident dying from gunshot wounds just as one other person lost his life at Ungwan Gaiya Village.

The assailants were later repelled by a combined team of Operation Safe Haven and the Police Tactical Squad.

Kaduna, a state in Nigeria’s northwest region, has become a hotbed of kidnapping and banditry.

While the state government and security have constantly assured residents of tackling the security issues affecting the state, criminals appear emboldened in their attacks.
