“I condemn the 2 April,.2022 terror attacks on villagers at Chando Zerreci village during an annual festival to usher in the 2022 farming season. In these recent attacks, several lives perished and about 19 persons were reportedly inflicted with severe injuries from gunshots.
“Shortly after this unholy act, some gunmen unleashed another terror on Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) on 5 April, 2022 at Rantis, Gashish in Barkin-Ladi Local Government Area and killed 2 people while others sustained injuries.
