Terrorists Attack Dooh Village In Kaduna, Kill 12

It was a late-night mission where the attackers entered the Northwest Nigeria village amid sporadic gunshots.

Twelve persons, including women and children were among those killed in a night attack by terrorists on Dooh, a village in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area  of Kaduna State, Northwest Nigeria.

The attackers entered the village around 10 p.m. (WAT) amid sporadic shootings. A woman, about 25, was burned to death while she was cooking in the kitchen, HumAngle gathered.

Dooh is not far from Samaru and Mabushi in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area. 

For years now there have been a series of attacks in Southern Kaduna. One of the most recent was in Kajuru where school children of Bethel International school were kidnapped.

“The villagers are there right now. People are trooping to the village to see what happened,” a source told HumAngle.

The details of the attack were still sketchy as of the time of filing this report, but there was speculation that the attackers have headed towards Zonkwa.
