Scores killed in renewed violence in southern Kaduna

Scores of persons were feared killed in a renewed round of violence between farmers and herders in Kajuru, Kajuru local government of Kaduna State between Sunday and Monday. Although the state state police command said it was not aware of the number of casualty, sources in the area put the number of dead at about 37 persons, while several others were injured. 

The renewed violence started when kadara youths from the area allegedly killed a Fulani man whom they said was a known bandit that had been terrorising the area, prompting a reprisal attack from his Fulani herdsmen who allegedly stormed Ungwan Uka to avenge the killing.
