- Unknown gunmen suspected to be bandits have reportedly killed 30 people in Zamfara State.
No fewer than 30 people have been reportedly killed in a renewed attack by bandits on two communities in Zamfara State.
EKO HOT BLOG gathered that the affected communities include Askawa and Gidan Dannunu in the Zurmu Local Government Area of the state.
It was learnt that the bandits carted away sheep, cows, and goats after burning barns as well as looting food items during the incident.
Deadly attacks have raged across Zamfara State where bandits have thrived.
Farming and herding communities in the state have long been terrorised by the bandits who raid villages, steal cattle and kidnap residents for ransom.
In 2019, the state government entered a peace agreement with the gunmen.
No fewer than 15 brand new Hilux vehicles and cash gifts were also given to leaders of ‘repentant’ bandits by the governor in 2020.
EKO HOT BLOG understands that despite all these, communities in the state are still being attacked by the bandits.
