Kajuru LG is located in Southern Kaduna, Nigeria.
The attack allegedly came when a peace process was ongoing in the troubled southern part of the state.
The ADA President stated that it was becoming clearer that the alleged plan was deviation so that the attackers would be able to continue their attack.

The association stated that the attacks sometimes reduce but they never stop in the Adara community, Nigeria. On Sunday, 16th August 2020, another attack occurred at Kallah village on the banks of River Kaduna, Nigeria.
This resulted in the death of Mr Danladi Abashi, a 50-year-old farmer who went near the villages that were invaded and are still occupied by Fulani herdsmen in the Kallah/Gefe/Libere area of Kajuru LG, Nigeria.
His body was only found with the help of the police officers because the herdsmen disallowed Adara people from even approaching the occupied area.
