The President of the Adara Development Association (ADA), Awema Maisamari, who confirmed the incident, told reporters on Tuesday that the herdsmen invaded the village armed with guns, machetes, and knives. He said:

“The attackers were Fulani herdsmen. They invaded the community at about 1am on Tuesday and started killing people.

“Twelve of the people were killed on the spot, the corpses of five others were recovered in the bush. There are those who sustained injuries.

“Some were killed with machete, some were killed by gunshots. Some houses were burnt. Some of those who escaped to the bush are still missing.

“About two hours after the bandits fled, the security personnel manning a checkpoint not too far from the community came. But they did not enter the community, they just stayed by the main road.”

Reacting to the killings in a statement issued on Tuesday night by his media aide, Garba Shehu, Buhari said the range of revenge attacks and counter-attacks in Kajuru communities are worrisome.

President Buhari said that killing in the name of revenge is wrong and should be condemned.

He said that the recourse to self-help, instead of the law of the land, is the real cause of the killings and counter killings between the two communities.

Buhari, however, warned that no person has the right to take the law into his or her own hands, adding that anybody caught involved in the killings will be arrested and prosecuted.
