The Godogodo axis has been under intense siege since July by alleged herdsmen. Affected villages said, the alleged Fulani are pushing them out using violence claiming that most of the affected villages have been designated as Cattle Grazing Reserves by the government.
Meanwhile, the acting Local Government Chairman of Jema’a LGA, Mr. Humble Katuka said that only two were killed in Dogon Daji and two houses burnt in Antang.
According to him, “Report reaching me said that two people were killed in Dogon Daji, and then they burnt two houses in Atang. They diverted the attention of the Police and soldiers stationed in Godogodo and sneaked to these areas to cause havoc. But, security have been beefed up and I shall personally go there later to inspect what has happened,” he said.
A source from Dogon Daji village said, “This morning, a group of herdsmen attacked our village (Dogon Daji). They killed three people and injured about six people. I am not sure, because we had to move out women and children. Then the armed herdsmen moved to Antang and burnt part of the village and injured some people,” he said.
