Bandits Abduct 150 Residents in Zamfara

About 150 residents in Shinkafi' Local Government Area of Zamfara State have been abducted by some unknown gunmen suspected to be bandits.

This has led to an overwhelming outcry in Shinkafi as bandits abducted scores of residents.

This abduction was said to be undisconnected from the arrest of Turji's father, a bandits' leader.

According to reports, Shikafi community came under attack on Friday, July 16, 2021 after the arrest of Turji's father.

 A resident in the area said Turji's father was arrested by security agents in Kano some few weeks back, and since then, nothing has been heard of his whereabout.

The bandits who attacked Shikafi community of Zamfara State seem to be on a reprisal attack for the arrest of their leader.

This attack is coming few days after the Nigeria Defence Headquarters made a statement on their crushing of bandits and criminal elements in Nigeria, particularly in the NorthEast.

Mohammed Shehu, the Police Public Relations officer in charge, said he would revert as details of the incident is yet to be confirmed as at the time of this reporting.
