Bandits Attack Community In Zamfara, Murder 19

In the Riyoji village of Birnin Tsaba District of Zurmi Local Government Area in Zamfara State, armed bandits have murdered no less than 19 locals.

According to reports, Muhammad Hassan, a community resident, said that the terrorists broke into the neighbourhood early on Wednesday, 23rd November, and began shooting sporadically.

Hassan went on to say that 19 individuals were killed while others managed to flee. He said that military operatives later mobilized to the village to calm the situation, adding that the deceased were buried the same Wednesday according to Islamic tradition.

“Most of the residents of the community including women and children ran to Dauran town in the local government area for safety.”

“Nobody moved out of the community with anything due to the tension from the terrorists. People are afraid of returning to the village even though the military operatives have been positioned there,” he said.

All efforts to confirm the incident from the spokesman of the state police command proved unsuccessful as his numbers were not reachable.
