No fewer than 19 persons have been confirmed dead after bandits invaded Kutemeshi Community in the Birnin-Gwari area of Kaduna State.

The bandits, who attacked the community on Saturday, operated for two hours as they shot indiscriminately at residents of the community.

A resident of the community, who confirmed the attack to SaharaReporters, said several calls to security agencies were unattended to, leaving the people at the mercy of the bandits.

Only God can save the hapless people of Birny Gwari . The midget Governor of the State is more concerned with how Fulani herdsmen are being given their own dose of their own food  in the Southern part of the Country.
