Just a few days earlier, two students were attacked with axes and machetes near a local village. One of them died on the spot.
International observers emphasise that the increasing violence in the region could lead to a civil war.
The governor of the state, Governor el-Rufai, yet again has made no statements about these attacks.
“While we were praying and refused to open the entrance to the house, they tried to break in using a hammer," explained a pastor.
50,000 Christians have been displaced from 109 villages now occupied by armed Fulani herdsmen in southern Kaduna state.
Locals reported the attack while it was still in progress in Apiashyim; security personnel only arrived when the attack was over.
Commissioner Ayuba said that in addition to the fourteen people killed, six were wounded
“We currently have 559 displaced Christians at the Zonkwa Town Camp,” James told Morning Star News.
A local official explained that “quite a lot of armed men attacked the village by firing at people".
