Bandits Storm Zamfara, Kill 1, Abduct Women, Children

Armed bandits have stormed Sabon Garin Kaura community in Kaura Local Government Area of Zamfara State, killing one and injuring scores.

Women and children were also abducted

A resident of the community, Bello Usman, said the bandits invaded the community and started shooting indiscriminately.

“The number of women and children that were kidnapped is not ascertained as figures are being compiled”, Usman added.

Recall that the gang of gunmen attacked the same Sabon Garin community last week and abducted some women from the family of a commercial transporter.

The victims were yet to regain freedom before the recent attack.

The attack came barely a few weeks after another serious invasion of Sakajiki community where scores of people were killed with many others displaced.

Following the constant attacks, on Wednesday, residents of Sabon Garin Kaura took to the street to protest their anger.

They blocked the road leading to Gusau and started a fire until the Emir of Kaura Namoda came to address them.

The Monarch pleaded with the residents to allow innocent commuters continue with their daily activities and assured them the emirate would constantly engage the government until peace was restored in the state.

However, the Zamfara State Police Command has not made any official statement on the incident.
