The sad incident occurred after gunmen believed to be bandits killed the newly Installed Chief of the community, Isiaku Madaki in the early hours of Sunday.

A Fulani man, Malam Buhari who was a resident of Kakura village revealed to punch Newspaper that after the bandit attack in the area, some villagers stormed the Fulani settlement, accused them of hypocrisy, and ordered them to leave the community.

The government ought to do something very fast about this sad idea of reprisal attack.
