The information Space has revealed that two residents – Mohammed Suleiman and Yahuza Sale – have been killed by bandits during an attack on Ungwan Kure.
The bandits also stormed Amawan Dadi and Rugan Jauru settlements in Kauru LGA where they killed one resident.
However, security agencies in Kaduna said several bandits were neutralised by troops during an operation in some communities in Giwa LGA.
According to them, security operatives spotted the bandits with herds of cattle at Yadi village and engaged them in a gun battle, a development that led to the killing of a number of the bandits.

He noted that the bandits attacked Kurmin Gandu village in Zango Kataf LGA where five people were killed.
