Security forces repel an attack on the Zamfara community, killing a large number of bandits.

According to the Zamfara State Police Command, many bandits were killed while attempting to raid Shinkafi town in the state.

The police revealed this in response to a report that the town and a police station were attacked on Sunday.

Joint Police and Military operations were alleged to have repelled the bandits, according to the command's Public Relations Officer, Mohammed Shehu.

“There was no attack on any police station in Shinkafi LGA or any portion of Zamfara state as incorrectly reported,” the statement stated.

“In the same way, the rumor of an attack on Shinkafi town was false. In the early hours of Friday, September 24, 2021, a large group of armed bandits attempted to attack Shinkafi but were proactively stopped by joint Police and Military operations stationed in the town, with the outlaws suffering severe casualties.

“Neither the security forces nor the residents have lost any lives. Similarly, no one was kidnapped. The town's security situation is mostly peaceful, with residents going about their daily routines. While new security measures are adequately implemented.”
