Tension in Gidan Waya, As 13 Killed In Southern Kaduna


Two persons, who went to the farm to harvest palm fruits, were on Monday reportedly shot dead by suspected herdsmen at Kariyo, near Gidan Waya in Jema’a Local Government Area.

Residents of the town later reacted by burning down an Okada belonging to a herdsman. Unconfirmed report says one of the herdsmen was killed.

A witness told Forefront that tension is engulfing the area, just as security personnel have been drafted to keep the peace.

The killings at Kariyo came on the heels of similar attack that occurred at Asso in Kagoma Chiefdom last Saturday. No fewer than 13 people were killed when gunmen, suspected to be herdsmen, attacked the town last Saturday.
