The attack has affected Communities dwellers by leaving some injured and in disarray.

Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, Samuel Aruwan, has confirmed the killing of 15 farmers by terrorists spread across three Local Government Areas of Giwa, Birnin-Gwari and Kajuru of the state.

Also, in Giwa LG alone, 11 locals were confirmed killed while in Birnin-Gwari and Kajuru recorded two deaths each.

According to him, those killed by the hoodlums include Abdullahi Musa, Adamu Musa, Aminu Nasiru, Adamu Ibrahim, Yau Usman Ladan, Yunusa Saidu, Salisu Abdulrahman, Fati Usman, Yakubu Ya’u, Marwanu Ibrahim and one unidentified body.

He gave the identities of those killed in Kajuru as Idon Bonos, and Aston Namaskar while those killed by the terrorists in Birnin-Gwari are Salisu Mai Tireda, and Mohammed Maikaba.

“The government was informed by security agencies that bandits attacked Rafin Sarki in Giwa LGA, with 11 locals confirmed killed.
Furthermore, bandits killed two people in Damari, Birnin Gwari LGA. The victims are identified as Salisu Mai Tireda and Mohammed Maikaba.

He said the governor, Nasir El-Rufai, expressed deep sadness over the latest attacks on the citizens while commiserating with families of the victims and prayed for the repose of the deaths.

“The governor also prayed for the speedy recovery of the injured. The government is engaging the security forces on these developments and other fronts,” the Commissioner added.

Our correspondent gathered that the 11 farmers killed at Rafin Sarkin, followed their refusal to yield to the terrorists’ demands to pay them levies before they harvest their farm produce.

A source told one of our correspondents that the farmers resisted the terrorists’ demand which led to killing them.

source said, “they attacked a village called Rafin Sarki not in Giwa town but in Giwa local government.

“The people of the area were clearing their farm produce when the bandits came to collect money from them so they can ‘allow’ them to finish their farming activities.

“But the farmers refused to give them the money they demanded. From there, the thing started.”
