Fulani herdsmen have killed at least 32 people in an attack on a Christian area of north-central Nigeria on February 26, sources said.

The early morning assault on villages in and around Maro, in Kajuru County of Kaduna state, came after a February 10 attack by herdsmen on Angwan Barde, in the same county, that killed 10 Catholic Christians along with an unborn child.

In the second attack, the Fulani herdsmen also damaged church buildings and property, and the Evangelical Church Winning All reported that many of its missionaries working in the area  have been displaced. A boarding school for the missionaries’ children in Kufana town has been closed.
