Cat­tle thieves ‘kill 26’:

Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

Tenty-six peo­ple were killed in two days of vi­o­lence blamed on cat­tle thieves in north­ern Nige­ria, the Na­tional Emer­gency Man­age­ment Agency said on Wednes­day.

Ban­dits on mo­tor­cy­cles at­tacked sev­eral vil­lages on both sides of the bor­der be­tween Sokoto and Zam­fara states on Mon­day and Tues­day, shoot­ing res­i­dents, burn­ing homes and steal­ing cows.

“At the mo­ment, 26 dead bod­ies have been re­cov­ered from the at­tacks,” NEMA spokesman Suleiman Kadir told AFP. “The toll may rise with the lat­est at­tack from yes­ter­day (Tues­day).” (AFP)
