Bandits escaping the current military onslaught in Zamfara state have killed six persons and abducted several other in Tureta local government area of Sokoto state.

The residents started coming out, thinking it was a time for a dawn prayer and the bandits started shooting at them.

They killed six, injured many and abducted several others. The entire area is in shock and some of the residents have started relocating to other places,” our source said.

The Deputy Governor of Sokoto, Maniru Dan’iya, who visited the area condoled them over the incident and reiterated their commitment to end banditry in the state.
