    The commissioner explained that in another incident, the bandits attacked Kizachi Village of Kauru LGA and killed 10 persons, leaving four others injured.

    “Fifty-six houses and 16 motorcycles were razed with several barns also raided and burnt,” he said.

    Aruwan listed those killed to include Esther Bulus, Maria Bulus (one-year-old daughter of Esther), Lami Bulus, Aliyu Bulus, Monday Joseph, Geje Abuba, Wakili Filibus, Yakubu Ali, Dije Waziri and Joseph Ibrahim.
