12 civilians were killed on Wednesday when terrorists attacked Maro market, a busy weekly market in Maro Ward, Kajuru local government area of Kaduna State

The unfortunate attack reportedly occurred around 3pm.

Mr Cafra Casino, a former chairman of Kajuru LGA confirmed the incident.

He said 12 bodies have been recovered so far, and over 20 others, who sustained various injuries, were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Casino further revealed that this was the second time the criminal elements had targeted the market during business hours.

Meanwhile, the attack has left the community in a state of chaos, with residents fleeing to neighboring villages for safety.

“Security operatives drafted to the area have already left. We are appealing to the government to deploy security operatives to help restore normalcy,” Casino stated.
