Catholic Archdiocese of Kafanchan says unrest in Southern Kaduna has claimed 808 lives.

The Catholic Archdiocese of Kafanchan says the unrest in southern Kaduna State has claimed 808 lives.

The church said fifty three villages have so far been attacked and 57 people injured.

Governor NASIR EL RUFAI said the attackers are foreign Fulani herdsmen, who were avenging past attacks on them and their livestock.

But the state and federal governments have been accused of not doing enough to end the bloodshed.

The latest killing last week took place despite a curfew on three local governments affected by the crisis.

At a press conference, the vicar general of the Catholic Archdiocese of Kafanchan, IBRAHIM YAKUBU, said the government had failed to protect locals.

YAKUBU said four local government areas have been attacked, with 808 people killed leaving 1,422 houses, 16 Churches, 19 shops, and one primary school destroyed.
