In a tragic incident, a group of bandits attacked the village of Dorayi in Zaria Local Government Area of Kaduna State, resulting in the death of a prominent Fulani Chief, Ardon Birni, Keyawe of Zazzau Emirate, Alhaji Shuaibu Mohammed, and his four children.

According to a family member, the bandits, estimated to be around five in number, forcefully entered the residence on Saturday night at approximately 10 PM.

The wife of the deceased, Malama Halima Shuaibu, recounted the horrifying experience, stating, "The Ardo was dragged out of his bedroom and brutally shot twice in the head, instantly claiming his life."

She further disclosed that the bandits proceeded to every room in the compound, ruthlessly executing her four married children, all of whom had their own families.
