Troops have been deployed to Ungwan Pa-Gwandara in Jema’a local government area of Kaduna state following an attack on the community by unknown gunmen.

A statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the Kaduna State Gov. on Media and Publicity, Samuel Aruwan said the deployment of troops is to further secure the area and provide the atmosphere for extensive investigation of the sad incident and the apprehension as well as prosecution of the culprits.

Condemning the attack, which the State Police command had confirmed to newsmen to have claimed 10 lives, Governor Nasir El-Rufai said that criminal elements must not be allowed to divide people and wantonly take lives.

Meanwhile, the governor has sent a message of condolence to the community, expressing his deep sadness at the loss of lives and his sympathy for the victims and their families.

He urged anybody with useful information on the attack to kindly contact the security agencies.

The governor directed Jema’a local government council and the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) to, as a matter of urgency, work towards taking care of victims receiving medical attention and provide relief materials to the community.
