KADUNA STATE

 

Death toll from Kaduna terrorists attack
rises to 26 including two soldiers.

The death toll from Sunday’s attack by terrorists at Agban Kagoro Chiefdom in Kaura Local Government Area of Kaduna State has risen to 26.

This was confirmed to Channels Television by the Chairman of Kaura Local Government, Matthias Siman.

Siman also said that two soldiers were killed while one other sustained injury.

He further disclosed that seven others sustained various degrees of injuries and are currently receiving treatment in some hospitals within Kaduna state and Jos in Plateau State.

The State Government earlier on Monday had imposed a 24-hour curfew in two local government areas, including Kaura.

“Following advice from security agencies, the Kaduna State government has declared a 24-hour curfew in Jema’a and Kaura local government areas with immediate effect,” Mr Samuel Aruwan,
the Commissioner for Internal Security and Home Affairs, said in a statement.

“This is to assist the security agencies to stabilize the situation in the areas, save lives and property, and enable the restoration of law and order.”

The commissioner condemned the violence and all acts of lawlessness that have occurred in the area, saying the government has given the security agencies full authorisation to enforce
the curfew.

He called on residents in the affected local government areas to cooperate with the security agencies in a bid to restore peace and uphold law and order in the areas.

Aruwan also assured them that the government was monitoring the situation closely, stressing the need to avoid actions that could lead to a breakdown of law and order.

ZAMFARA STATE

Zamfara government, police confirm fresh
bandit’s attacks.

The
Zamfara
State
Governor, Bello Matawalle, has described recent bandits’ attacks in Bukkuyum and Maru local government areas as “dastardly” and “cowardly”

PREMIUM TIMES
reported
how 24 residents, including the village head, three other traditional title holders and other people were killed by bandits in Ganar Kiyawa community of Bukkuyum local government Sunday morning.

In a statement signed by Zailani Bappa, the governor’s media aide, Mr Matawalle said he also received security briefings of attacks on some communities in Maru and Bungudu local
government areas Sunday evening.

While noting that the attacks came at a time the state was witnessing peace, Mr Matawalle said it would not deter his administration from ensuring that people of the state enjoy
lasting peace.

“It is unfortunate that this attack is coming at a time when we are experiencing improved peace in the state where we were able to host millions of people on an important religious
event without a single incident,” Governor Matawalle observed.

“However, this and other isolated cases of banditry across the state will not deter our efforts at ensuring a peaceful Zamfara State, an oath we have taken to pursue with our fullest
capability,” Mr Matawalle assured citizens of the state.

Police say ‘only 16 killed’

In an SMS sent to PREMIUM TIMES earlier in the day, the state police command spokesperson, Mohammed Shehu, said the number of those killed was exaggerated.

Mr Shehu, superintendent of police, said the attackers killed 16 people in Ganar Kiyawa community Sunday morning.

“The villagers killed by the bandits at Ganar kiyawa village in Bukkuyum LGA were 16 and not 24 or 20 as being reported by some section of the media,” he said in the SMS

The police spokesperson also said security agents were making efforts to ensure normalcy returns in the area.

“The Zamfara Police Command in collaboration with the military are currently at the affected community conducting an extensive bush
combing
with a view to returning normalcy and apprehending the perpetrators of this bizarre crime,” he added.
