At least 11 Nigerian soldiers were killed on Tuesday night in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State in what appeared to be a daring reprisal attack by bandits loyal to the assassinated gang leader Buharin Daji.

 
Newswire, PRNigeria quoted a top military source as saying that the heavily-armed bandits stormed a military post at Doka, an area between Funtua and Birnin Gwari and killed the soldiers on the spot and the bodies of the slain soldiers have been dumped in a mortuary.
 
The attackers had earlier attacked Maganda District in the afternoon on a revenge mission over the killing of Buhari Tsoho where nine members of security volunteer groups were critically injured.
 
After Maganda, the Armed bandits moved toward Kampanin Doka at the junction road leading to Gwaska and Dansadau and relaunched another attack leading to the death of the soldiers.
 
A leader of security volunteer groups in the town said that the community had notified Kaduna State government since last week of strange movements of bandits in the Birnin Gwari through Funtua-Dansadau axis but no action was taken.
 
The source said: “With the killing of the bandit commander Buhari Daji at Nabango area under Birnin-Gwari local government of Kaduna State just 16 kilometers to Dansadau in Zamfara state, there were strange movements of some of the armed men in the area.
 
“Suspicious of their movements with sophisticated weapons around Goron Dutse, Kuiga, Maganda, Unguwar Nachibi communities, we immediately sent alerts and warning signals to Kaduna state government to take action. In fact since the killing of Buharin Daji, kidnappers have been having field days along Birnin-Gwari-Funtua road on a daily basis. Some villagers being terrorized by armed bandits in Kirazo and Layin Mai Gwari had to relocate to Birnin-Gwari town.
 
“Surprisingly, shortly afterwards some soldiers that were deployed for ‘Operation Karamin Goro’ in Birnin-Gwari were withdrawn, leaving behind few soldiers who stayed inside the town.
 
“We have been under intense fear of this armed group and have called for proactive government protection before the latest killing of soldiers,” the sources concluded
