The attack on Asso is believed to be part
of the larger Southern Kaduna violence
that has pitched Fulani herdsmen against
largely local farming communities leading
to the death of over 200 people in the
past year.

The casualty from this weekend’s attack
has not been confirmed but Mr. El-Rufai
condoled with “the victims and their
families, while affirming that security
operations are being ramped to rid the
forest areas of the bandits.”

The governor also launched ‘Operation
Harbin Kunama II’ that would help the
Army deal with the armed persons
responsible for the attacks in Southern
Kaduna.
