A community leader, Isiaku Madaki, was murdered in his residence at Kakura in Chikun local government area of Kaduna State in the early hours of Sunday.

A resident of the area, Baban David, revealed that the deceased was on Saturday installed as the Head of the community.

Kakura, a community predominantly occupied by the Gbagi tribe also has other tribes with few Fulani settlers who have lived in the community for decades.

“We all gathered in his residence earlier in the day (Saturday) to rejoice with him over his appointment. However, we were shocked when in the early hours of today (Sunday) when we began to hear gunshots.

“We were afraid we could not come out of our houses. Later we were told that the gunmen had killed him in the presence of his wife and family.

“We found his dead body lying on the ground. His wife told us the gunmen broke into their residence and shot him. They did not take anything, neither did they abduct anybody,” the source said.

Findings gathered that in the morning, aggrieved natives allegedly attacked the Fulani settlement where 14 people were feared dead.

A Fulani man in the area, Mallam Buhari explained that the natives surrounded their settlement and asked them to leave the area since they are now hypocrites.

He noted that while they were leaving, they were attacked and some of them were killed, saying “on our way out to the village, we counted four corpses. Later on the bush path, the bodies of ten others littered the ground.”

At the time of filing the report, police have been deployed to the community to restore law and order. It was gathered that even though normalcy had returned to the embattled settlement most people have deserted the area for fear of the unknown.


Also, the police or the state government are yet to react to the incident at the time of filing this report.
