A resident of Tudun Biri in Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State, Idris Dahiru has disclosed how 34 members of his family were killed when Nigerian Army bombarded the village.
Over 80 people were said to have been killed when drones from the Nigerian Army bombarded residents in a mistaken identity on Sunday while the villagers were celebrating Maulud.
Dahiru told the BBC Hausa Service that the annual Maulud celebration was shattered by unexpected airstrikes.
He said the first bomb exploded without warning, killing innocent people, including women and children, saying that some victims were torn apart by the blast.
According to Dahiru, as they rushed to aid the injured, the jet returned, unleashing a second bomb, adding that 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,” Dahiru stated,
