According to reports reaching Lailasnews.com, two people have been killed and a man’s hand chopped off by unknown gunmen and thugs in Tsohuwar Gwari village in Birnin Gwari local government area of Kaduna state.
Several sources from the village said the gunmen invaded the village around 12 midnight on Saturday and kidnapped nine people, including a newly-wedded bride.
“They killed two people on the spot and kidnapped nine, even though three people were able to escape,” a source revealed, according to media reports.
He called on the government to, as a matter of urgency, come to the aide of the people. On Saturday, Zubairu Gwari, Emir of Birnin Gwari, asked his subjects to defend themselves against those invading their communities.

On the night of friday, Sani was on his way to barber’s shop when he was besieged by the dreadful thugs “Yan Shara” in Badarawa, Kaduna. They stabbed him multiple time & chopped off his arm. Kaduna residents are living in constant fear of thugs, kidnappers or armed bandits 😥
Kaduna state is undergoing one of its most trying times, people in Birnin Gwari are slained by armed bandits; Kaduna-Abuja road has become a den of Kidnappers; thugs are unleashing mayhem in the metropolis. The State government is woefully failing to tame the situation.
Badarawa residents had to throng to Badarawa/Malali @PoliceNG station yesterday’s evening to register their displeasure over what they consider as Security Agent’s negligence. The perpetrators when captured & handed over to the police are mostly released within less than a week
