Death toll from Nigeria attack last week ‘over 130,’ state governor says

An attack by gunmen on villages in northwest Nigeria last week claimed “over 130” lives, more than double the toll initially reported, the governor of Kaduna state says, suggesting an ethnic motive.

“The last report we got is that over 130 people were killed, not even 66,” Nasir El-Rufai tells reporters after a meeting of military and security chiefs with President Muhammadu Buhari.
