Herdsmen Attack Christian Worshippers In Southern Kaduna

Our source said security operatives, who arrived on the scene following a tip-off, had rushed the wounded worshippers to a hospital in the local area. “There would have been more dead people at that church today if we did not intervene as quickly as we did,” the security source said. He added that security agents were determined to identify those who planned and launched today’s attack in order to arrest them.

Women in Southern Kaduna after a mass killingArmed herdsmen this morning attacked worshippers in a Catholic Church during Mass in a village known as Ungwan Powpow in Kachia local government of Kaduna State. A security source in the area confirmed the attack, adding that one worshipper was killed on the spot and three others sustained serious gunshot wounds before the attackers retreated.

The site of the attack is located in the violence-prone southern part of Kaduna State where Fulani herdsmen frequently descend on residents of different communities in feuds that sometimes have to do with disputes over cattle grazing or religious differences.
A community source told SaharaReporters that members of his group were tired of the incessant attacks by the herdsmen, adding that the security agents must go after the attackers to avert a further deterioration of the climate of insecurity and violence.

Stop calling these murderous scum 'herdsmen'! They're mercenaries; foreign terrorists that have been brought in by the local boko bastards and their wealthy paymasters to help cleanse the middle-belt of those 'annoying' infidels, and strengthen the hand of Islam in the north! Making the country ungovernable for that Otuoke 'usurper' is just an added bonus!

There is nothing like Fulani herdsmen
they are an arm of boko haram. Let's
all stop pretending. If Muslims want
their own country out of Nigeria let
them come out clearly and demand it, it
is not out of place . But killing innocent people as they are doing now is
unacceptable. And should be resisted
with full force.
