The resident further stated that the bandits surrounded the village on motorcycles carrying heavy weaponry before attacking the civilians.

“They came in a large number and surrounded the whole town while some began house-to-house operations and chased our people mainly women into the bush” he added.

Lawali called on federal and state governments to come to the rescue of the abducted persons saying, “I wish to call on federal and Zamfara State government to deploy security personnel to the area to trace the hideout of these terrorists and rescue our people as we don’t have anything to pay for ransom.”

At the time of reporting this article, no comment from the state’s security agency had been issued regarding the attack.

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.
