How I lost 34 family members to Kaduna bombing – Resident

Idris Dahiru, a resident of Tudun Biri in the Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State, reports that the aerial bombardment conducted by the Nigerian Army on Sunday evening claimed the lives of 34 members of his family.

Abujapress reports that a Nigerian Army drone struck a gathering of residents honoring Maulud, killing over eighty villagers. However, the army has expressed contrition for the bombing, stating that it was intended for terrorists.

He said, “Our annual Maulud celebration was shattered by unexpected airstrikes. The first bomb exploded without warning, killing innocent people, including women and children, some victims were torn apart by the blast,” Dahiru told BBC Hausa.

“As we rushed to aid the injured, the jet returned, unleashing a second bomb, this time, many of those who had come to help were among the casualties.

“My family alone has lost 34 members in this tragedy. We have 66 loved ones receiving medical care at Barau Dikko hospital,” he added.
