Some gunmen have reportedly laid a siege on a football match, killing four suspected spectators while four others were injured at Zunuruk village of Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

According to a report by the Daily Trust, the attackers struck on Sunday evening while a football match was going on and shot sporadically at the crowd of spectators.

However, while the Kaduna State Police Command has yet to confirm the incident, an eyewitness, who pleaded anonymity, said the attackers came from a nearby bush and shot sporadically at the unsuspecting spectators, killing four on the spot.

The witness said the development brought the football match to an end as the spectators ran for their lives.

The witness also said in a nearby Tsonje village on Sunday morning the villagers woke up to discover the dead body of one of the residents of the area who died of gunshots.

He said the victim identified as Dogara Kazzah was said to have gone to ease himself in the bush the previous night around 8pm but never returned only to be discovered dead as a result of gunshots the following day, Sunday.
