Unnumbered armed bandits have stormed five communities in Tsafe Local Government Area of Zamfara State and unleashed terror attack.

The communities attacked included Bidda, Ungwar Rogo, Kajera, Karda, Magazawa where 15 people were killed, and dozens injured.

According to one Muhammadu Alkhamis, the spokesman for the three of the communities, the attacks came in the early hours of the day.

“They came with over 60 motorcycles and each motorcycle conveyed three of their members; everybody started running helter-skelter,” he said.

Our source explained that 15 lives were wasted in the three affected villages, and that the victims were male adults.

When contacted, the state police public Relation officer (PPRO), SP Mohammed Shehu confirmed the incident.

’“It was a reprisal from the Fulani whose people were also killed by the Yansakai at Unguwar Rogo community” the PPRO said.

The state police spokesman said that the people of Unguwar Rogo village had earlier intercepted some Fulani herdsmen migrating from Daza village in the Bungudu Local Government Area of the state three days ago.

“Five of the Fulani people were able to escape and the remaining two were killed by the Yansakai,” he alleged.

Speaking further Shehu said that the Yansakai refused to surrender the two dead bodies to their people for burial, despite appeals by the Divisional Police officer in charge of the area.

According to Shehu, the aggrieved Fulani people attacked the three communities in order to retrieve the dead bodies of their brothers and also avenge their killings.

He said that the police had already dispatched armed policemen to the areas to comb the axis and apprehend the Fulani, saying that the police were making effort to restore normalcy to the communities.
