Stating that security forces have been dispatched to the region, Jalige said that a 24-hour curfew has been declared in the region due to the attack.
MOTORCYCLE USE PROHIBITED
Motorcycling has been banned in some states because armed persons have been attacking with motorcycles recently in the country.
The region faces violent clashes between the Fulanis who are busy with animal husbandry from time to time and some tribes engaged in farming.
The Fulani, who migrated to the south of the country to graze their animals, claim that the farmers are trying to steal their animals and attacked them.
