Gunmen kill 4 in Zamfara
Suspected bandits yesterday killed four persons in an attack on Maberiya village in Shinkafi Local Government Area of Zamfara State, Daily Trust gathered.
A witness, Ibrahim Yawo, said the bandits who were in the village to steal cows and other domestic animals, fired several gunshots to scare away residents.
“Many residents have fled the community to escape attack. The rustlers also injured some people,” he said.
The state’s Deputy Commissioner of Police, Usman Nagoggo, confirmed the attack, but said no casualty was recorded. He added that a detachment of policemen has been deployed there and normalcy has returned to the area.
‘‘The hoodlums might be looking for soft targets because they can’t withstand the heat on them as a result of the joint operation being carried out to get rid of them in the forest. But we are aware of their movement and are doing our best to forestall any possible attack,” he said.
