No fewer than 40 persons have been killed in fresh bandits attacks on two communities of Shinkafi and Anka local governments of Zamfara State. The fresh attacks came less than 24 hours after Governor Abdul’Aziz Yari assured of full security in the state.
The governor had ordered security agencies to deal ruthlessly with bandits before the latest attack.
The bandits, who move in high number on motorcycles, were said have attacked the community and Danjibga in the local government areas by residents.
Sharar Daji, Army spokesman of Operation, confirmed the two incidents.
He said the casualties and extent of damage in the attacks will be released later, stating the Commander- in- Charge of the operations has arrived the area to provide security and get on- the- spot assessment.
