ARMED ATTACK

 


LAGOS STATE

 

Gunmen kill two, kidnap three in Lagos.

There was confusion between Friday and Sunday in Ayobo Housing Scheme Extension, Oshin area of Ayobo-Ipaja in Lagos State, as some gunmen invaded the area, allegedly kidnapped three
persons and killed two others.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that some yet-to-be-identified gunmen on Friday allegedly kidnapped two married women before a repeat of the same incident, yesterday, in
the area.

The Financial Secretary of the Landlords’ Association in the area, Mr James Ojuade, told NAN, yesterday, that the gunmen, who allegedly killed two men and kidnapped two sisters on
Friday, allegedly kidnapped another man yesterday.

He said the gunmen came through the boundary between Lagos and Ogun states and escaped with their victims inside a boat.

“About 6.00 p.m. on Friday, four men, who were armed with guns, broke into the residence of one Mr Rashidi Salami, beat his wife mercilessly and took away his two married daughters
who came to visit them.

“Two neighbors, who intercepted and wanted to prevent them from escaping with the women, were shot dead, before they escaped with their victims.

“The deceased, Messrs Nurudeen Olanrenwaju and Idris Olowolayemo were buried yesterday according to Muslim rites,” Ojuade said.

Ojuade added that the gunmen came again on Sunday at 1.00 p.m. to the building next to where they allegedly kidnapped the two women on Friday and kidnapped one Mr Kehinde, whom he
said had just returned from church.

He said: “Immediately Kehinde parked his car, the gunmen jumped into his compound and started shooting into his building.

“They captured him and escaped again to Ogun through a canoe.”He called on the state government to come to their aid and provide security for the area.

He said: “We want the government to erect a police post in Oshin to reduce criminality in the area. We want the police to help us rescue the three people who had been kidnapped.”

Another resident, who only identified himself as Kunle told NAN that many residents had abandoned their houses in the area due to the incessant kidnappings.

“The community is now deserted as many residents had packed out of their houses for fear of the unknown”.

KADUNA STATE

24 hours after the Police Inspector
General’s visit, bandits abduct 22 villagers on Abuja-Kaduna highway.

Bandits have raided some houses at Anguwar Maji, in Jere town along the Abuja-Kaduna Highway and abducted 22 villagers.

This comes barely 24 hours after the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, visited the highway.

Jere, which shares a boundary with Tafa-Sabon-Wuse in Niger State, is located on the ever-busy Abuja-Kaduna Highway.

According to Daily Trust, a resident of Anguwar Maji, Shehu Bala said the incident happened around 11pm on Sunday.

Bala said the bandits, who came in large numbers and wielded AK-47 rifles, invaded some houses and whisked away 22 residents, including five women.

“The bandits came in their large numbers as some of them wore army uniforms.

“They moved from house to house and woke their victims up before they marched them into the bush at gunpoint,” he said.

According to him, the bandits operated silently in the community for over an hour.

He added that they only started shooting sporadically to scare people from coming after them after leaving the community.

Bala, however, said one of the 22 kidnapped victims escaped from his abductors while being led into the bush.

ZAMFARA STATE

Bandits invade Zamfara town, killing
many including the commissioner’s son.

Suspected armed bandits, Sunday night, invaded Tsafe town, the council headquarters of Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State, killing many people.

Residents said one of the victims is the son of the state’s commissioner for security affairs, Mamman Tsafe. Neither the commissioner nor the state government has confirmed the killing.
The state’s commissioner for information, Ibrahim Dosara, did not respond to calls and a text message by PREMIUM TIMES.

Residents said the gunmen who invaded the town went on a shooting spree immediately after night prayer. The gunmen killed at least three people in the attack.

PREMIUM TIMES learned that the incident occurred in the ‘Hayin Tumbi’ area, which is close to the commissioner’s residence, while many people were still in mosques observing their
night prayers,

Following the attack, many residents have fled the town.

The state police spokesperson, Muhammad Shehu, did not respond to calls for comment about the attack when contacted on Sunday night.

However, a police source confirmed the attack and the killing of the commissioner’s son. The source said the police would release an official statement on the incident Monday morning.

Sunday night’s attack is the latest in Zamfara by gunmen who have terrorized the state and neighboring states since 2018.

The gunmen have killed thousands of people and kidnapped thousands of others in Zamfara and other North-west states.

The attacks have continued despite repeated pledges by President Muhammadu Buhari to end them and despite the heavy deployment of security operatives to the areas.

Apart from Zamfara, other states affected by the attacks include Kebbi, Sokoto, Kaduna and Niger.
