Gunmen have reportedly killed eight vigilante members and two other persons in Kakangi and Unguwan Matinja communities in the Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

The village heads of Kakangi and Kisaya villages under Kakangi Ward were also kidnapped.

Idris Khalid, a resident of the LG, who confirmed the incident to journalists, said the terrorists stormed the villages at about early Thursday.

The killed vigilante members in Kakangi were Bala Kamba, Kabiru Dan Dugui, Abdurrahman Musa (Ubale), Hambali Abu, Aliyu Abu, Nura Jika (Maleka), Mubarak Musa (Dan Wamba) and Ikra Hantsi.

Khalid also said that the two victims in the Ungwan Matinja community under Gayam Ward were identified as Isah Gambo and Christopher Abubakar.

He said the vigilantes were attacked while trailing the abducted victims on their way to a burial between Kakangi and Sabon Layi.

He said, “The vigilantes engaged the terrorists, killing scores of them, but could not rescue the two traditional rulers and others.

“Normally, anytime there is a kidnap incident, the vigilantes always trail the terrorists to rescue the victims.

“It’s unfortunate that in the process, eight gallant officers of the vigilantes who have been sacrificing in ensuring the safety of our people were lost.”
