About 12 persons were on Wednesday, May 29, killed by terrorists who attacked a weekly Market in Maro Ward, Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

Former chairman of the local government, Cafra Caino told Punch that the assailants invaded the market around 3pm and opened fire. 12 bodies have been recovered while 20 others who sustained various degrees of injuries have been taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

He further revealed that this is the second time the weekly market has been attacked while business owners and customers were transacting. Caino said; 

“The situation is critical and has thrown residents around the area into confusion while they scampered for safety in neighbouring villages.

“Security operatives drafted to the area have already left. We are appealing to the government to deploy security operatives to help restore normalcy.”
