BREAKING: Bandits Currently Attacking Zamfara Community
Information reaching Ibom Focus says that Bandits Currently Attacking Zamfara Community
Terrorists are currently attacking Guawa village in Zamfara State.
Guawa is one of the communities under the Kaura Namoda Local Government Area of the state.
The gunmen said to be in large numbers and riding on motorcycles, reportedly stormed the village around 9:00 pm on Sunday.
The situation forced residents, especially women and children to scamper to safety or remain indoors as the shooting continued.
Deadly attacks have raged across Zamfara state where banditry has thrived.
Farming and herding communities in the state have long been terrorised by gangs who raid villages, steal cattle and kidnap residents for ransom.
In 2019, the state government entered a peace agreement with the gunmen.
About 15 brand new Hilux vehicles and cash gifts were also given to leaders of different ‘repentant’ gangs of bandits by the governor in 2020.
But despite all these, communities in the state are still being attacked and residents kidnapped and/or killed.
