A fighter jet targeting terrorists has accidentally bombed villagers at Kunkuna, in Safana Local Government Area of Katsina State.
Safana is the LGA where an Assistant Commissioner of Police, Aminu Umar, was gunned down by bandits, on Tuesday.
Umar and his men had responded to a distress call when he paid the supreme price.
Details of the accident at Kunkuna village are unclear, but many lives were reportedly lost.
The jet was said to have hit the wrong targets in the operation launched against camps of bandits in the area.
Edward Gabkwet, spokesman of the Nigerian Air Force, was unreachable at the time of filing this report.
