Robbers suspected to be Fulani in the early hours of Wednesday attacked Nuku village in the Kaiama Local Government of Kwara State, leaving the villagers with tears.
The robbers, who sources claimed invaded the community looking for money, were disappointed and furious after discovering that there was “nothing on ground for them to steal.”
The sources added that irked by the situation, they left residents with machete injuries and raped minors.
Two members of the community, identified as Alhaji Hassan Woru, who was the head of the family; and his brother, Yunusa Woru, were attacked with machete by the robbers.
They also abducted and raped two girls who were later released to the community.

He said, “Efforts are ongoing to apprehend the assailants while further investigations are ongoing.”
It was also gathered that the two with machete cut and the two minors were receiving medical treatment at the Woro General Hospital, in the Kaiama LGA.
