The bandits also reportedly abducted 35 others, including a retired Director of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), his brother and the brother’s wife.

They were said to have also injured nine people during the attack in the two LGAs.

The retired CBN Director was identified as Zakariya Markus

The breakdown showed that six persons were killed, five abducted and two injured in Kauru LGA while three persons were killed, seven injured, and 30 others kidnapped in Igabi LGA of the State.

According to sources, the incident occurred penultimate Friday around 10pm when bandits invaded the community.

Sources said the bandits picked two people who, at gun point, led them to the residence of the retired CBN staff and abducted him.

“Banidits moved to his family house, abducted his brother and the brother’s wife. Residents rushed out in an attempt to rescue victims but the bandits fired at them killing six, injuring two.

“Those killed, include Danmasani Gwaska, Mrs. Giwa John, Kapishi Barmu, Ganya Ubangida, Shigama Salisu and Gani Magawata.

Kaduna Governor Uba Sani has appealed for aggressive military operations against bandits across the State following the attacks.

The Governor sent his condolences to the families that lost their loved ones in Igabi and Kauru LGAs.

He spoke through the Overseeing Commissioner, Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, at Gwada and Kerawa villages in Igabi LGA, during an on-the-spot assessment of the security situation in the area, in the company of the Garrison Commander, One Division Nigerian Army, Brigadier General Muhammad Kana, other military commanders and security forces working.

He said: “We are here on behalf of Governor Uba Sani to first of all condole with you over the lives lost in Kerawa and Sabon Birni Wards in Igabi LGA and also Kwassam, Kurera and Kan Makama communities in Kauru LGA.

“May Almighty God grant the deceased eternal rest, and grant a speedy recovery to the injured.

“I want to assure you that we are also here for an assessment of the security situation and as you can see, troops are presently carrying out operations in these locations, to which you have attested. The Governor of Kaduna State is not relenting in his efforts, and he is also working towards sustained aggressive military operations in the frontline locations and emerging fronts like Kauru LGA.”

I don't know the reason why we are still tolerating these wild animals (Northerners) as part of us in Nigeria. What haven't these people committed that would make the the south push them away?

No. But they are intentional in their choice of massacre locations.

These people don't care about choice of location! These people attack mosque when it is packed with worshippers, kill those they can and abduct those they can. You still think this is a religious thing?? How can we conquer this common enemy if we are so divided among ourselves???

I swear I just can't believe how someone will truly believe bandits care about your religion. These bastards even attack places of worship even during the scared month of fasting! Yet someone thinks they target Christians. It's unbelievable.

I take you as a very reasonable person on this platform,but if you persist in trying to convince everyone on an obvious issue, then I will tell you that you can deceive everyone else but me. There are BH terrorist, ISWAP Terrorists, Fulani herdsmen, so called bandits and sponsored murderers attacking Southern Kaduna. How many times have zaria for example or other Northern Kaduna towns dominated by Muslims been attacked? Since this January alone.lets no go back to last year, do you know how many times that Christian communities in Southern Kaduna have been attacked? Even the international media is aware and speaks out on this issue that you, a Nigerian wants us to sweep under the carpet because it involves your religion. There is an undeniable intentional attack  on Christian communities in Kaduna State, but what I can give to you is that when their fingers are on the trigger, they may kill people that belongs to same faith as them, mistakenly. Time heals, but truth heals faster. There is no true peace without truth. You yearn for a united and peaceful Nigeria but sorry,it cant come on the platform of lies and deceit.

And,if you want to be reasonable, avoid Gogoman. Ogogoro has damaged him beyond repair.

Oh now it's no longer "they attack Christian communities" it's now "they attack Christians more"?? Wow...how very reasonable of you. A reasonable human is one who understands that a rampaging brutal killer has no religion. he attacks where he feels he has the advantage. It's okay if you can't understand that, but the thing is, the victims don't really care about your opinion.

My friend you can claim ignorance or live in denial all you want but it will not erase the truth. I already know that it is a pattern for people in your religion and it is really very bad. That is why majority on this planet avoids you people.I even wonder where you saw what you said in my write up. The bandits attack Christian communities and settlements in Kaduna andTaraba states. They are intentional about it.They have a purpose and sponsors. When they attack, they may mistakenly kill Muslims living among those Christians and take it as collateral damage. There is no 100% Christian community in Nigeria,just as there is no 100% Muslim community. All we have is majority and they attack places where the majority are Christians.If any muslim should fall victim,he or she will be collateral damage. I cant argue further with people that knows the truth but feel comfortable to deny it.
