The motive of this attack is yet unknown but scores of residents of 2/1 New Site Kubwa, were attacked in the early hours of Wednesday by unidentified assailants.

The assailants came in their numbers and unleashed terror on the unsuspecting residents. Security men were not spared.

A copy of notice in the residents WhatsApp group we got says,

“Good Morning Residents! I am directed to inform us of the attack carried out on our  community  last night by yet to be identified group of person’s in which most residents were injured including some security guards and are currently being treated at Kubwa general hospital.  Please whoever that is affected or lost valuables  should join us at Kubwa Police Station, Phase 4 for formal report.”

"As a result of the events of last night, note that the community is presently short of security personnel. Hence, all male residents are expected to converge at Gayyatta Hotel tonight for Security Vigilante drive. Time: 10pm prompt. 

Gen. Sec."

According to a resident who pleaded that his identity be hidden, “They came to attack some bike men resident in the area at about 2.50am or there about . On their way out , our own security men accosted them and our security men were attacked.”
