At least four persons have been killed after unknown gunmen attacked Mile One Village in Tafan District, Kaduna State on Friday, November 25, 2016.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that several houses including the house of the village head were burnt during the attack.
Confirming the incident when contacted, the Interim Chairman of Jema’a local Government Area, Dr. Bege Katuka, said:
“I just left the affected village barely 30 minutes ago, I was there to assess the extent of damage.”
Also speaking to reporters on Saturday morning, a resident in Kafanchan said that the hoodlums launched an attack against the residents between 2 p.m. and 10p.m on Friday.

The villages as well as Kaduna State College of Education have been turned to ghost towns.
