ARMED ATTACK

 


ZAMFARA STATE

Bandits kill 11, injure several in Zamfara attack.

At least 11 people were confirmed dead by residents when bandits attacked the Ruwan Bore community of Talata Mafara Local Government Area of Zamfara State on Saturday.

Local sources said several residents were also wounded by the bandits.

Ruwan Bore is a few kilometers from Talata Mafara town, the headquarters of the local government.

Mustapha Lawal, a resident of Talata Mafara, said the bandits, who were riding on motorbikes, arrived at the village around 6:14 p.m. and surrounded the village.

“But some of the villagers still managed to escape because they knew alternative paths out of the village. But many people were badly wounded while eleven residents were killed,”
he said.

Mr Lawal said the village has been deserted by the remaining residents while funeral prayers were conducted for the deceased in a nearby village.

A matron at the Talata Mafara General Hospital, who simply asked to be named Maryam, said there were five residents of the community on admission to the emergency ward of the hospital.

Bandits tracking cattle

A security source in Talata Mafara, which is the second largest town in the state, told
PREMIUM
TIMES
over the phone that the bandits were following a herd of cattle belonging to some Fulanis, with the aim of rustling it.

“The cattle spent days on the route and what we learnt is that those leading the cattle followed through Ruwan Bore (the attacked villàge) which attracted the bandits. But by the
time the bandits attacked the community, the cattle had been taken away from there but the bandits thought the cattle belonged to the people of the community,” he said.

When asked if the cattle were also stolen, he said the cattle belonged to some Fulanis and not bandits.

Police react

When contacted, the state’s police command spokesperson, Mohammed Shehu, asked this reporter to wait for an official statement.

After 12 hours, this reporter sent Mr Shehu a message via
WhatsApp
to which he responded:

“No problem, you will get the confirmation tomorrow morning. Please bear with us. We appreciate your support and encouragement,” he sent back.

He, however, did not respond to further enquiries from PREMIUM TIMES at the time of filing this report.

Zamfara, like in other areas in Nigeria’s North-west region, is convulsing under the attacks by gunmen, locally called bandits, who attack mostly rural communities and travelers.

These bandits have been blamed for killing thousands of people. They have also abducted many more in what is shaping to become one of the worst kidnap-for-ransom syndicates in the
history of the country.

In the face of the failure of the government to protect residents of the area, many communities have set up vigilante groups to protect residents from attacks by bandits but this
has worsened the security challenges in the area as it has given rise to an explosion of tit-for-tat killings between the bandits (who are mostly of Fulani extraction) and the vigilante groups, set up by the majority of Hausa communities in the area.

ANAMBRA STATE

Hoodlums kill mother, four children, two others, burn another police station in Anambra.

Barely 24 hours after the suspected killers of Anambra State lawmaker Hon Okechukwu Okoye threatened to kill more people, seven persons were reportedly killed while a police station
and some vehicles were ablaze early Monday morning.

Among those that were killed, according to sources, were a mother and four of her children at Isulo, Orumba North local government area of the state.

One other person was said to have been killed at Abatete in the Idemili North local government area of the state while another was killed in the Nanka Orumba North local government
area.

The gunmen also attacked a police station in Anaku in Ayamelum Local Government Area and set vehicles ablaze, one of the sources said.

SaharaReporters had reported that Okoye, who represented Aguata II State constituency, was abducted along with his driver in Aguata on May 15, 2022.

The lawmaker was later beheaded and his head was found on Saturday at Nnobi, in the Idemili South Council Area of the state.

Last Monday, the district office of the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company in Ogidi, a magistrate court and the headquarters of Idemili North Local Government Area were attacked.

The Anambra State Police Command had yet to confirm the development as its spokesman, Ikenga Tochukwu, said details of the incidents were still sketchy.
