Unidentified gunmen attacked Madamai village in Kaura local government, according to reports.

The attackers set fire to some houses at one end of the village, according to the statement. Three of the burning houses were put out by the troops, and six locals were rescued from the fire.

Gideon Gwani, in dousing the tension and preventing a breakdown of law and order following the unfortunate incident. The governor commended their efforts and sterling leadership.

 

 

“The governor ordered an urgent assessment of the area by the Kaduna State Emergency Management Agency towards the provision of succor to the affected households.
