Bandits struck Anguwar Danko village in the Kakangi constituency of Birnin Gwari Local Government Area, Kaduna, on Wednesday night, leaving 23 people dead.

The attack, characterized by indiscriminate gunfire and mass abduction, plunged the community into chaos.

Eyewitnesses recounted how the bandits, numbering a large group, descended on the village, terrorizing residents and unleashing violence with impunity. The village, situated approximately 10 kilometers from Dogon Dawa village within the same local government area, became a scene of horror as the assailants roamed freely.

Yahaya Musa Dan Salio, the area's representative in the State House of Assembly, confirmed the grim toll of the attack, revealing that 23 residents lost their lives, while five others sustained injuries. Amid the chaos, some villagers managed to escape into the surrounding bush to evade capture by the marauding bandits.

According to Dan Salio, the bandits also rustled cows from the community, exacerbating the devastation inflicted upon the villagers. The aftermath of the assault saw the community mourn the loss of 23 lives, with 19 victims from Anguwar Danko and four from Kanawa village laid to rest on Thursday.

When contacted for further details, Mansur Hassan, the Public Relations Officer of the state Police Command, assured that additional information would be provided after authorities reached out to the affected area.
