Kaduna State Police however disputed the casualty figure of 36 given by the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), saying, “it is a lie!”. The police said 11 were killed while 16 sustained grievous injuries.Investigations yesterday showed that of the two wounded persons taken to St. Gerald Hospital, Kakuri, one had his wrist amputated and had to undergo surgery to remove some objects lodged in his body.
