At least seven people have been killed and several others injured after bandits attacked Igabi, Giwa, and Chikun local government areas of Kaduna state.

Security agencies also reported that properties worth millions of Naira were destroyed and cattle rustled in a series of separate attacks that occurred in the three local government areas.

The latest incidents come barely 24 hours after the state government reported that 937 people were killed by bandits in 2020.

According to the Kaduna State Commissioner for internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, the armed bandits stormed Gangi village in Igabi local government, shooting sporadically in what seemed to be a cattle rustling operation, and in the process killed four residents.
