Bandits Killed Five Miners In Kaduna
Bandits ambushed the personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps
Gunmen suspected to be bandits have killed at least five miners in an attack which occurred near a mining site at Hayin Udawa town in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
It was gathered that the victims were attacked while working on the site.
A community leader in the town who simply identified himself as Muhammadu Umaru confirmed the attack.
It was also learned that the victims were from Udawa village. Umaru said;
“Five of our local miners were killed yesterday (Wednesday) while working in the bush. They were all from Udawa town. They usually go into the bush for mining activities but others sustained gunshots.”
Mr. Umaru also disclosed that the scene of the attack was not far away from the site where bandits ambushed the personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), killing seven as well as six miners a few weeks ago.
