A fresh attack yesterday at Langson village of Atyap chiefdom in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area of Kaduna state has claimed 10 lives with many injured.


Salama News gathered that the attackers invaded the community around 9pm, shot sporadically, and looted a shop in the area before they were repelled by Mopol.


Confirming the ugly development, the Council Chairman, Zango Kataf Local Government, Mr. Francis Sani, appealed to the federal government to deploy more security operatives to the Local Government Area to bring to an end the recurring attacks on innocent lives and property.


The Chairman said the unwholesome attacks were destabilizing the affected communities as no legitimate activity thrives.


Also reacting to the development, Atyap Community Development Association, ACDA, passed a vote of no confidence on a section of the security operatives deployed to the area to protect lives and property.


The National President of the association, Mr. Sam Achie who stated this to Salama News at the scene of the attack, lamented the silence of Government in the face of the attacks in the area.


He urged the government to match words with action by arresting the perpetrators.


The ACDA National President however, commended the Mopol in Langson community who were said to have repelled the attackers, even as he called on the people to continue to be alert to protect their communities and property against the oppressors who, he said are bent on taking their ancestral land.
