A community in the Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State is reeling from a tragedy that has left many villagers feared dead. An alleged Nigerian Air Force jet reportedly dropped a bomb during a Maulud celebration in Tudun Biri, resulting in a devastating loss of life.

While details of the incident remain unclear, preliminary reports suggest that the bombing claimed the lives of approximately 30 individuals. The harrowing accounts from residents indicate that the bomb struck the gathering of villagers who were celebrating Maulud, a commemoration of the Prophet Muhammad’s birthday.

The potential for a rising death toll remains a grave concern as rescue efforts continue. The community is grappling with the aftermath of this devastating event, struggling to come to terms with the sudden loss of loved ones.

When contacted for a statement, Samuel Aruwan, the Overseeing Commissioner of the State Ministry of Internal Security and Home Affairs, refrained from providing specific casualty figures. He indicated that the government would address the media in a press conference at the Government House.

The authorities’ investigation into the incident is ongoing, and the circumstances surrounding the bombing remain under scrutiny. The community awaits official clarification and hopes for accountability in the wake of this tragedy.
