Posted by on October 29, 2022 0

There was pandemonium at Dan Jamfari Community in Rogo Local Government Area of Kano State as gunmen believed to be Islamic terrorists invaded Barbaji village and burnt about 10 houses.
The attack forced villagers to flee from their homes.
The Executive Secretary, Kano State Emergency Management Agency, Dr Saleh Jili, who confirmed the development while briefing journalists on Friday, decried the incident.
Jili noted that the agency sympathised with victims and had taken relief materials to them, vowing that the Kano government would do everything within its powers to fish out the assailants and bring them to justice.
A resident, Malam Magaji Audu, who spoke to New Telegraph, claimed the assailants were armed with cutlasses.

According to him, “More than 200 of them invaded the village in the night and went from house to house claiming they were looking for their stolen motorcycle.
“The attackers tried to stab me in the presence of my family members and I refused to produce my children whom they claimed to have stolen their motorcycle as demanded.”

Audu explained that the assailants returned the day after and set his house and others on fire while his family members escaped.

“The hoodlums carted away food items, chickens, turkey, farming equipment and destroyed 10 houses within the village,’’ he said.

The district head of Rogo, Alhaji Muhammad Maharazu, who also confirmed the attack, commended the emergency management agency for the kind gesture of the relief materials.

Maharazu who was represented by his secretary Alhaji Bashir Tsoho, said the Emir of Karaye, Dr Ibrahim Abubakar II, had rendered all the necessary assistance to the victims and also reported the incident to the state government.
