Over 90 villagers of Tudun Biri in Rigasa District of Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State were killed Sunday night when a drone of the Nigerian Army bombed a gathering of residents who were celebrating Maulud.
Residents said the incident, which occurred around 9pm on Sunday, also left over 60 people injured.
The military had since owned up to the bombing but failed to give more details, insisting that the statement issued by the Kaduna State government suffices for now.
Also, there were no official figures in respect to the number of people killed or those that sustained injuries as both the military high command and the Kaduna State government were silent on that.
Daily Trust reports that many of the injured, including women and children have been evacuated to Barau Dikko General Hospital in Kaduna for treatment.
