Three herders have been killed in what could be a reprisal attack by unidentified persons who stormed Ribok, Tsoriyang and Kankada General Area of Zangon Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

According to reports from security agencies, the attack on Sunday was in retaliation to the earlier attack in Ungwan Dooh (Mado) area on Saturday night.

One car, three houses, and eight herders’ huts were burnt, while scores of herders were evacuated to safety by a combined team of military and police personnel.

Condemning the attack, the Acting Governor of the state, Dr Hadiza Balarabe, appealed for calm and urged residents of Zango Kataf to desist from killings, while security agencies carry on with investigations.
