Terrorists attack Zamfara community, abduct district head, five others |


Some gunmen suspected to be the bandits causing havoc in parts of Zamfara State have attacked Ruwan Rana under the Bukkuyum Local Government Area of the state.

The head of the district, Magaji Makau and five others were reportedly kidnapped during the attack.

DAILY POST learned that the incident occurred on Saturday night when the armed men invaded the community, shooting sporadically before whisking the victims to an unknown destination.

According to an eyewitness, the terrorists also rustled an unspecified number of cattle belonging to residents of the community.

Efforts by DAILY POST to reach the state command were unsuccessful as the Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Yazid Abdullahi did not take his calls.

However, an eyewitness, a resident of Bukkuyum town, Ilyasu Abubakar confirmed the development to Channels Television.

“The bandits entered the town on Saturday night and started shooting sporadically; people went into hiding because of the fear of being kidnapped,” the resident said.

“They picked the district head and five other persons in the community; several livestock were also rustled”, he said.
