The death toll in the Goska attack  carried out by suspected Fulani herdsmen between Saturday and Sunday has risen from 5 to 11, a source told our correspondent.

The source, who is a community leader in Goska, some few kilometres away from Kafanchan, Jema’ah Local Government Area of Kaduna State, said four boys and two women, all natives, were still missing after the raid on the village.
