Nine more people have been killed and more homes have been destroyed as Fulani violence in Nigeria’s troubling Kaduna state has seen the death of dozens upon dozens of Christians in the last few weeks.

Kaduna Gov. Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai confirmed that the latest attack occurred on Saturday morning in the Sanga local government area of the Kaduna state, which lies in the northern part of Nigeria’s Middle Belt.

“The security agencies have so far recovered nine corpses, including children,” El-Rufai said in a statement. ”The attackers also burnt several houses in the village. The government condemns this attack on the lives and security of citizens and appeals to our communities to resist those who do not want peace.”
