The bodies of the eight (8) Fulani men who were gruesomely killed earlier this week have been laid to rest in accordance with Islamic tenets.
They include the body of Alhaji Baako, the Islamic cleric and philanthropist who was well known for his selflessness in the Yendi Municipality.
The deceased were shot dead with 5 others injured, and several homes in the two communities have been burnt following an attack on Zakoli and Kunkon communities within the Yendi Municipality of the Northern Region on April 14.
According to wife of one of the victims, Ayishatu Funsi, the attackers who were well armed invaded the community with motorbikes.
“When they came, they separated women and children on one side and killed only the men. They killed my husband and his brother and torched our house,” She revealed.

That, according to sources angered the Konkomba communities in the Fulani enclave to retaliate the killing of the teacher, Atinkaonline reported.
Checks revealed that no arrest has been made since the killing.
