Barely a few days after official declaration as “terrorists” by Federal Government, bandits – heavily armed with dangerous weapons – stormed Barakallau community in Kaduna State, killing one Islamic cleric, popularly known as Malam Abubakar.
The bandits also reportedly rustled and went away with many cows from the community, located along Kaduna-Zaria expressway, in Igabi local government of the state.
The incident, according to a resident journalist source, occurred around Sunday midnight in Barakallau suburb of Kaduna Town.
The source stated that, “Bandits stormed Barakallahu community in Igabi LGA yesterday night and killed one Mallam Abubakar and went away with many cows.”
All efforts to get more details on the attacks from the source were fruitless, the Kaduna State Police Command’s spokesman, Muhammed Jalige, who was also contacted, could not respond.
