Gunmen presumed to be bandits have reportedly attacked Gora Namaye community of Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State, in the early hours of Monday. They were said to have killed four people, abducting over 300 others

As obtained from Suleiman Gora, a resident who claimed to be an eyewitness of the incident, “the bandits attacked the community in large number with many vehicles, shooting periodically.”

He further asserted that the bandits were going from house to house, abducting those they wanted, killing others. According to the source, there were no security interventions, until the vicious activities were over.

An eyewitness alleged that over 300 people were abducted. On the other hand, SP Mohammed Shehu, the State Police command spokesman, confirmed that “the bandits killed only four people and went with 50 persons.”

SP Mohammed noted that armed security operatives have been deployed to the area to rescue the taken-away victims and search for the bandits for possible detention.
