37 people have been killed in Malagum 1 and Sokwong communities of Kagoro Chiefdom in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

This is reportedly from separate terrorist attacks on Sunday night.

According to the council chairman who confirmed the attacks to the press Monday, Mathias Siman, seven persons were brutally killed at Sokwong Community.

This attack comes barely five days after an attack was launched in Malagum 1 killing three persons.

According to Siman, all the houses in Sokwong Community had been completely razed down by the terrorist, though he says he is yet to confirm the killings in Malagum 1.

“Attacks in our area have been consistent and multi-dimensional with efforts of the security operatives and government not seen or felt,” he added.

Speaker, Kaura Local Government Legislative Council, Chairman of Kauru Local Government Area, Atuk Stephen also speaking to the press confirmed that the terrorists carried out the coordinated attacks at about 11 pm on Sunday where they killed 37 people.

The lawmaker also said that the terrorists burnt down over 100 houses and destroyed many vehicles and motorcycles during the attack.
