SP Gambo Isah, the police spokesman for Kastina State, confirmed the development on Sunday, saying that the incident happened in the early hours of Saturday.

According to him, trouble started about 12:30 on Saturday morning, when the fulani bandits attacked Kurechin village and the villagers repelled them. The villagers, thereafter had made bonfires of empty corn stalk to further scare off the bandits and keep the village safe.

Some local vigilantes called Yansakai then reportedly set ablaze some Fulani settlements at Aibon Mangwaro village, also in the same council (Danmusa).

The police spokesman further revealed that three hours later, there were reports of organised and simultaneous attacks in all the villages where the casualties were recorded.
