Residents of Bayan Dutse a suburb in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State are in fear of a reprisal attack by Fulani herdsmen following the killing of their cattle by suspected youth of the area.
The residents woke up Saturday morning to discover that a Fulani youth came with the local security group, policemen and his mother to the area, claiming that youth of the area killed one of his cattle on Thursday.
This revelation has since put residents on the alert owing to fear of a reprisal attack by Fulani herdsmen judging from past experiences.
According to him, they (youth) chased him away before the act took place. The youth who simply identified himself as Aminu said, he was scared and ran for his life.
Leader of the youth and security group in the area, Mr. Ada Oche in his response, said elders of the area are on top of the matter.
“Elders of the area are working with the police to get to the root of the matter. Investigation is presently ongoing.”
Sarki Musa Kakuri, the traditional head of the area, said he wasn’t going to speak because investigation was still on.
