Kebbi Community Calls For Help Over Incessant Bandit’s Attack

A number of communities in the Zuru Emirate area of Kebbi State have cried out for help due to incessant bandit’s attacks.

In a statement to journalists Garba Musa Maidoki, an elder in the community, said the incessant bandits attacks have impacted negatively on the socio-economic activities of their people more especially in the areas of commerce and agriculture.


He went on to say that; “Mass murder, burning of children,  insertion of dry cell batteries into women’s private part,  burning of grains and villages, cattle rustling and multiple kidnappings in the area  are close to genocide.

According to him, “we are living in a dilemma. We have reported our plights to both the state and federal governments but things keep growing from bad to worse.”

“A meeting was held in Zuru about two years ago with the Heads of National Security Agencies, the Kebbi State Governor, the Emir of Zuru among many others in attendance, but till date, the situation remains bleak.”

Maidoki noted that the military and the police deployed to secure the area were often poorly equipped as a result they incurred heavy casualties creating fear and hopelessness in the minds of the people in Zuru communities.


He described the people of Zuru as law-abiding citizens who through service in the different arms of security in the country sacrifice their lives for the general wellbeing of Nigerians, as such; same should be extended to their communities.

Maidoki said their defenseless communities would continue to talk to the concerned authorities until the security challenges in Zuru Emirate is resolved and peace returned to their land.
