Survivors say the attackers surrounded Gwaska on Saturday afternoon.

They set homes alight and fired shots, causing people to flee in panic – many straight towards the gunmen.

Residents have demanded that President Muhammadu Buhari’s government urgently deploy more police and military to protect vulnerable villages on the state border with Zamfara.
Last month 14 miners were reportedly killed in an attack by gunmen in the Birnin Gwari area.
