    Gunmen attacked a rural village in North Central Nigeria on Sunday, resulting in nearly 50 fatalities. The attack occurred in the early hours of the morning in the village of Tawari, located in Kogi State. The gunmen reportedly set fire to homes and shot at villagers as they fled. The motive for the attack is unclear, but it is suspected to be related to ongoing conflicts between ethnic groups in the region.

    The attack has been condemned by Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, who has called for an investigation into the incident. In a statement released by his spokesman, President Buhari expressed his condolences to the families of the victims and assured them that the government would do everything in its power to bring the perpetrators to justice. The president also urged Nigerians to remain calm and cooperate with security agencies to ensure that such incidents do not happen again.

    The attack in Tawari is just the latest in a series of violent incidents that have plagued Nigeria in recent years. The country has been grappling with a range of security challenges, including terrorism, banditry, and communal clashes. The government has been criticized for its handling of these issues, with many Nigerians calling for more effective measures to be put in place to protect civilians. As the investigation into the Tawari attack continues, it remains to be seen what steps the government will take to address the root causes of violence in the country.
