There was reign of terror in Zamfara as suspected terrorists stormed Rogoji community in Bakura Local Government Area, killing six people during the attack.
Confirmimg the incident, was police spokesman, SP Muhammed Shehu, who revealed that the suspected terrorists stormed Rogoji community on Wednesday night and started firing sporadic gunshots, killing five vigilante operatives instantly and injured one who later died at the hospital.
“They invaded the Rogoji community about 11pm on Thursday, they came to the community on motorcycles in large numbers with sophisticated weapons, shooting to scare the people away,” the witness revealed.
He explained that “the terrorists went into houses ransacked from one house to the other, carting away valuables and rustling an unspecified number of animals in the troubled community.
However, Mr Abdullahi, a resident of Bakura town, said that the military responded promptly to repel the attack though when they got into the community the terrorists had already left.
“Honestly, the military officers and the civilian JTF tried, there are some vigilantes stationed in that village, so they called their members in Bakura town but considering the type of weapons the terrorists were using, they had to call the military and I saw them when they were coming.”
“Before the troops could reach the village, the terrorists had left the place but honestly they responded to the distress call,” the witness buttressed.
