Gunmen suspected to be fulani herdsmen were reported to have invaded three villages in Kaura local government area of Kaduna state, killing about 30 people while several houses were burnt.

The attack came after a family of seven was wiped out in Manyi Akuru village near Manchok in the same local council by suspected fulani herdsmen last Thursday.

The three villages, according to sources include Kirim, Zagan, and Zandyen which are bordering Plateau state. The bandits were said to be many and were armed with sophisticated weapons.

A resident of the Zankan, Mr. Bulus Gwaza said the gunmen invaded the three neighbouring communities on Monday at about 12 midnight and started shooting indiscriminately.
