Few days after the visit of the National President of the Cattle Rearers Association to Zamfara State, to reconcile the warning farmers/fulanis clans, no fewer than 23 were reported to have lost their lives in Hura Girke village of Wonaka district of Gusau Local Government Area of the state.



About 80 are also currently receiving medical treatment at Mada Hospital as a result of injuries they sustained while escaping.

Naijacrux gathered that people suspected to be Fulani cattle rustlers stormed the village in the late hours of Sunday and gunned down a number of people at the entrance of the village before entering into their property.

After they succeeded in entering the property, they started shooting indiscriminately.

The gunmen numbering about 60 and armed with different dangerous weapons, including AK 47 rifles, arrived the community on motorcycles. Source close to the area revealed that the gunmen made several attempts to expand the attack, but for the intervention of security operatives, who repelled them.
?Their mission was a reprisal one,? added the source.

Governor Abdulaziz Yari of the state while condoling with the families of the victims, expressed sadness over the situation and assure the people of his government?s readiness to bring those involved to the book.

Yari who was represented by his Commissioner of Special duties, Alhaji Sani Gusau, said arrangements will soon be made for their assistance and appealed to the people of the state to stop taking laws into their hands.
