Five miners killed in Kaduna
In an incident near a mining site in Hayin Udawa town, Chikun Local Government Area, Kaduna State, five miners were killed by robbers.
The victims were working at the scene when the attack happened. A community leader in the town who went by the name Muhammadu Umaru reportedly confirmed the incident to Daily Trust.
It was also learnt that the victims were from Udawa village. Umaru said;
“Five of our local miners were killed yesterday (Wednesday) while working in the bush. They were all from Udawa town. They usually go into the bush for mining activities but there were others who sustained gunshots.”
The community leader also disclosed that the scene of the attack was not far away from the site where bandits ambushed the personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), killing seven as well as six miners a few weeks ago.
