Insecurity: Bandits kill three, kidnap eight nursing mothers [See here👇]



Three people were killed while eight nursing mothers with babies were kidnapped by bandits in the Tauji area of Kanoma North in Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

An indigene of the area Mohammed Maisa, who spoke to The PUNCH said the incident occurred around 1.40 am on Sunday when the notorious bandits stormed the area in their large number.

Maisa said immediately after the bandits who were on motorcycles arrived in the area, they started shooting in order to scare away the people.

“They later went from house to house searching for people to kidnap.

“They succeeded in kidnapping eight women who are mostly nursing mothers and killed three persons who wanted to escape,” he said.

The District Head of the town, Alhaji Ibrahim Nabature (Sarkin Sudan), confirmed the incident.

He called on the state government and relevant security agencies to deploy adequate security personnel to the area to avert rampant attacks on the communities.

All efforts to contact the spokesperson of the Zamfara State Police Command, Mohammed Shehu, proved abortive as his lines were not connecting.
