A Community leader and a seven-year-old boy are among 11 people who died when gunmen invaded of Gora Gan Village in Zango-Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State on Monday evening.
The fresh attack comes barely 24 hours after 21 people were killed by bandits at Kukum Daji village in neighbouring Kaura Local Government Area.
Police authorities have yet to confirm the latest attack, but the Chairman of Zango Kataf Local government Area, Ezekiel Manzah stated that the attack happened on Monday evening.
The attack was carried out by gunmen suspected to be members of a Fulani militia, according to reports.
Manza said 11 bodies have been recovered while several others are still missing.
The council chairman is worried that the gunmen stormed the village despite a curfew imposed by the Kaduna State government.
Only last week, 24 people were killed by bandits in what seemed like coordinated attacks in three communities of Zango Kataf Local Government Area.
