According to Madaki, Mr Rimamskep Atenji, Mr Andekwab Yakubu Ashasim and Mr ElKannah Akyara, both of Kuteb origin were attacked killed by bandits suspected to be Fulani herdsmen.

“It’s unfortunate that incidences of attacks are still happening on the Kuteb people when a peace accord between Fulani and Kuteb people is in place. Just yesterday, three of Kuteb youth, Mr Rimamskep Atenji, Mr Andekwab Yakubu Ashasim and Mr ElKannah Akyara were killed by armed men suspected to be Fulani herdsmen.
