Suspected Fulani herdsmen allegedly unleashed violence on the residents
of Southern Kaduna killing the traditional ruler of the Fadan Karshi
district in Sanga Local Council, Bala Madaki and his nephew, Emmanuel
Tanko, in a night attack.

Narrating what happened, a resident of the community who spoke on
condition of anonymity, said;

to the latest attack, the district head had applied an insecticide in
his room and was sleeping outside his big compound when the Fulani
unleashed the attack. We heard a gunshot and everyone woke up and ran into their various rooms around 10:00 p.m. on Sunday. The gunmen followed the district head right inside his room and killed him”.
resident of the community who is a traditional title holder said they
now live in fear. He said the gunmen who attacked the community spoke
don’t know what is happening. We hardly sleep here with our eyes closed
since 2013 when gunmen invaded our communities. These gunmen speak
Fulani. Many people are being killed frequently, including women, youth,
children and traditional rulers. Something must be done urgently.”
Another resident of the community said “It was very hot inside and people were sleeping outside. Around 10:00 p.m.,
the chief moved into his house with his family. Then some gunmen, who
our people said were Fulani, stormed his compound and started shooting.
They went into his room and shot him pointblank. They also shot a small
boy, Emmanuel Tanko, who was writing his final year secondary school
exams. The boy was a nephew of the late chief. Right
now, Fadan Karshi is deserted. Shops and service centres are shut.
People are either staying in-doors or are leaving the town. No one knows
what is coming next. Police are patrolling the streets, but I am not
sure if they have any clue about the murderers. I
want you to recall that this was the district head that received former
governor, Mukhtar Yero, on September 22, 2014 when our women protested
half- naked because of the scale of killings by the Fulani going on at
that time. Today, the type of
killings going on is murdering of isolated people. Cattle are also
grazing freely on people’s farms in these areas of Sanga and people are
afraid to do anything about it. Now, they are targeting people and
eliminating them. What people are saying about the killings of our
district head is that he might have been killed by the Fulani who have a
grudge with this community and the ruler.”
Meanwhile the state Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has condemned the killings and appealed for calm .
