More violence in Nigeria has taken the life of 21 citizens and injured an additional 30 as radical Fulani herdsmen opened fire on a wedding party in the Kakum Daji Village of Kaduna Sunday night.

The violence reportedly began about 10:30 at night. Nineteen of the 21 deceased victims were killed on site, with another two dying after being transported to a hospital.

"As I speak, some of the villagers are still missing and we don't know their whereabouts or their situation," local community developer Yashen Titus said. "We cannot even search deep into the bush because security agents have not been deployed to the community yet."

This is just the latest attack reported as Fulani militants continue to wreak havoc on the predominantly Christian villages of north-central Nigeria.
