At least four people have been killed and three others injured following a bloody clash between some locals and herders in Kaduna State.
According to reports by the military and police authorities, the clash occurred along some cattle routes in Jankasa village in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area of the state.
It later escalated into a firefight between the two groups before security forces arrived to bring the situation under control.
The Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs in Kaduna, Samuel Aruwan, also confirmed the number of those killed in the clash on Monday.
He added that the injured persons have been taken to a hospital where they were treated.
Following the incident, a group of armed men attacked some settled herders at Manchok in Kaura Local Government Area, in what security agencies said was an apparent reprisal.
Aruwan stated that 13 cows were killed so far, but troops recovered 25 others in the area. While no human casualty was reported, authorities said the security operatives would continue with their search operations.
