According to the incident, on Sunday i.e. December 3, a drone attack was accidentally carried out by the army in a village in North Western Nigeria.

The Nigerian Army did not reveal the number of deaths in the attack on Tudun Biri village in Kaduna state last Sunday (3 December) night, but residents here said that dozens of people were killed and many injured in the drone attack. On this, local officials also confirmed the deaths. Kaduna State Governor Uba Sani ordered an investigation.

And due to this many people died and many people were injured. Officials did not confirm the number of people killed, but the state usually draws large crowds to celebrate that festive holiday.

Claim of death of 85 people

Nigeria’s military often relies on airstrikes in its fight against bandit militias in the country’s northwest and northeast, where jihadists have been fighting for 14 years, according to multiple other media reports. Claiming the number of deaths, a villager named Idris Dahiru said that 85 people killed in the Nigerian air strike have been buried.

A large number of the injured were taken to a training hospital in the capital, Kaduna, local state security commissioner Samuel Aruwan said after a meeting with army officials and community leaders.

Militia gang is terrorizing

In fact, the men in the militia gang are known locally as bandits. They have terrorized parts of northwestern Nigeria for a long time. To attack them, the army had launched a drone attack, which accidentally fell on the people of Muslim community while celebrating the festival and became the cause of the accident.
