He said that when they were escaping from their burning house, they heard their neighbours saying in Hausa language that they had burnt his uncle inside the house.
He expressed surprise that such a thing could be happening, and added that he is planning to take his uncle to his son.
He said, “When we saw that the house was on fire, we sneaked out through the back door without a pin as the attackers were gathered at the front.
“As we were walking away, we could hear them saying in Hausa language, “mun kona baban dake cikin dakin,” meaning we have burnt Baba inside the house, referring to my uncle. We are still shocked that this could happen and my BP has gone up. We are waiting for the curfew to be lifted, so I can take my uncle to join his son in Jos.”
Speaking further, he narrated how the attack was carried out by Fulani herdsmen, and how their Muslim neighbours participated in it. CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
