New information gathered by Townflex confirms that terrorists have reportedly k!lled ten people, with some still missing, while leaving behind four persons injured in a new attack on the Langson community in Kaduna State’s Zango Kataf Local Government Area, Nigeria.
The attack came just three days after Ungwan Wakili was attacked, resulting in the deaths of 17 people in the same Local Government Area.
Mr Sam Achie, President of the Atyap Community Development Association, confirmed the incident saying ten bodies had been recovered and others were still missing.
The president of the ACDA accused the military of being complicit in the killings in the area.
According to Mr Sam Achie’s response, there are military checkpoints in the community, but such checkpoints do nothing to help or protect the people who live there.
He alleged that the attack on the village took place around three military checkpoints, but the military could not repel the attackers, but rather the military stopped some youths from neighbouring villages who wanted to come and render help.
“It was unfortunate until the attackers finished their operations before the military allowed the youths,” he lamented.
“The military are sincerely not protecting us as they’re deployed. We are calling on the authority concerned to remove the military from the land.
“The carnage in Atyap communities was a deliberate attempt to disenfranchise the people from voting a leader of their choice in the coming Saturday’s election.
“There are ongoing plans to disenfranchise our people from participating in the Saturday election,” he said, adding that, “the government’s silence over the attacks speak volume.”
The ACDA national president commended the Mopol in Langson community who were said to have repelled the attackers, even as he called on the people to continue to remain on alert to protect their communities and properties against the oppressors who are bent on taking their ancestral land.
The council chairman, Zango Kataf Local Government, Mr Francis Sani, while confirming the attack, appealed to the government to deploy more security agencies to Zango Kataf Local Government Area to arrest the recurring attacks on innocent lives and property in the area.
Per multiple reports gathered that the attackers invaded the community at around 9pm on Tuesday, shot sporadically, and also looted a shop in the area before they were repelled by the Mopol.
