At least 10 people have been killed by gunmen on Saturday, following attack on Nandu-Gbok village in Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The attack, which also saw 30 houses razed down by the assailants, occurred at about 4am on Saturday.

A member representing Sanga/Jama’a Federal Constituency, Shehu Nicholas Garba, in a statement on Saturday condemned the attack, saying 10 people have been killed by the attackers.

“We woke up this morning to the sad news of an attack by gunmen on Nandu Gbok, a community in Sanga LGA of Kaduna State.

“About 10 bodies have been recovered and about 30 Houses confirmed burnt down.

“That the latest attack is coming while we are mourning and trying to deal with the devastating massacre wrought on the Adara People (in Kajuru LGA) has, once again, brought to the fore the plight of the indigenous people of Southern Kaduna” the lawmaker said.

“I am also appealing to Sanga Local Government Council and the State Government for immediate provision of relief materials to the displaced victims.

Our communities are helpless and are pleading that all persons of conscience should speak out” he added.

The Kaduna police command is yet to speak on the matter.
