According to the source, witnesses said that the violent action was apparently perpetrated by militiamen from the Fulani ethnic group, who recently perpetrated other assaults against local people.
According to the report, several villagers are still missing after the attack.
Two days ago, the mayor of the Katsina Ala area, Alfred Atera, said that about 100 villagers were killed in the attacks by armed groups, including Fulani herdsmen.
In Nigeria, especially in the southwest and central regions, inter-community clashes are frequent and cause hundreds of deaths and injuries every year, as well as heavy economic losses due to the theft of livestock, grains and the destruction of agricultural land.
In addition, in this African country, with more than 200 million inhabitants, the Army is fighting armed gangs and the radical Islamic group Boko Haram.
