A Senior Secondary School girl and five others have been reported killed by gunmen in Goska, a village near Kafanchan, in Jemaa Local Government of Kaduna State, early Sunday morning.

The class two girl, Gimbia Morik, was the daughter of Mr Gideon Morik, former Deputy Speaker of Kaduna House of Assembly and also one-time Chairman, Jemaa Local Government.

“The attackers just stormed the village and started shooting; they killed six people including my daughter, and five others,” Molrik told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), in Kafanchan, on Sunday.

He said that the attackers injured many others and burnt many houses.

The local government and two others – Kaura and Zango Kataf, have been under a 24-hour curfew, following incessant attacks by unknown gunmen.

A senior police officer, who confirmed the incident, described the destruction at Gioskas as “very devastating”.

He said that the corpses have been deposited at the Kafanchan General Hospital where the injured were also being treated.

The Federal Government on Saturday deployed more troops to Kaduna State ahead of Christmas and New Year celebrations, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
