Chaos broke out in Kalla village near Kasuwar Magani in Kajuru local Government Area of Kaduna State when an angry mob went house to house setting them ablaze.

The incident happened on Tuesday evening.

A previous violence raged on Monday in the same village causing about 12 deaths and leaving a large number of the villagers displaced.

According to residents,most of the miscreants were seen going from house to house setting fire yesterday evening.

Security agencies were consequently deployed and they helped to restore normalcy in the area.

Narrating the incident, a resident of Kalla village who simply identified himself as Akilu said: “We abandoned our properties to save our lives. We are not part of the crisis in Kasuwar Magani. In fact, when the first incident occurred on Monday nothing happened in our village.

“But on Tuesday evening that we thought everything was calm, some youth in their numbers began to set fire to our houses.

“Our village is small with virtually about 20-25 houses and all have been set ablaze by the youth. This I saw with my eyes as we were being escorted out by mobile policemen and soldiers who came to rescue us.

“From the police station, those of us with relatives nearby went there with our family members to past the night. It was really a horrific situation‎.”
