Suspected unidentified gunmen again on Christmas eve attacked Ungwan Mailafiya in Kwagiri district of Cwong Chiefdom in Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State allegedly killing six persons and injured several others.

 Member representing Jema’a local government at Kaduna State House of Assembly, Labari S. Tella, has called on security agencies to sit up, while calling the people to be vigilant.

In a statement he personally signed and made available to newsmen on  Monday, said, “The fresh unprovoked attack on Nindem Community and Ungwan Mailafiya in Kwagiri District of Gwong Chiefdom on Christmas eve resulted in the death of six persons, including a child of about six years, and others wounded is barbaric and should be condemned by all civilized people.

“Such acts should have been forgotten with the stone age but it is unfortunate that the perpetrators are carrying on with reckless abandon,” he said.

He explained that it was disheartening that the ugly incident is happening barely a day after four people were killed in Nindem Community of Godogodo Chiefdom.”

The lawmaker wondered why the security agencies are not empowered enough to protect innocent law abiding citizens.

“Just when we are still looking for best means of protecting ourselves from kidnappers and violent armed gangs, our rural communities have been ravaged by gunmen who take pleasure in sucking out innocent blood,” he lamented.

He said that information at his disposal has it that the victims have been moved to the hospital in Kafanchan.

“The dead bodies have been moved to the Motuary  while those who sustained injuries are responding to treatment at Ibrahim Yakowa Memorial hospital in Kafanchan,” he wondered.
