Gun men believed to be Fulani herdsmen, Tuesday, raided Zangang village of Atakar Chiefdom, Kaura local government area of Kaduna state, killing 11 people.

Several others sustained injuries from gun shots and were said to have been rushed to the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) in the neighbouring Plateau state.

The invaders reportedly burnt many houses in the attack which started on Sunday and became more ferocious Tuesday.

The district head of the area Mr. Yohanna Daniel whose house was also burnt and was believed to have died, said he escaped death by providence.

He alleged that their attackers were Fulani herds men who came in a large number, shouting “Allah akbar (Allah is great) and shooting sporadically at people

He said they were dressed in black and red colours and were wielding AK 47 guns and pursuing people like chickens.
