Despite Buhari’s promises and threats, bandits have once again killed over 40 people and abducted over 100, including 80 nursing mothers and children in Sabuwar Tunga village, Dankurmi district in the Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

We gathered that the armed men arrived at Sabuwar Tunga on motorbikes and unleashed mayhem on the vulnerable residents.

A source noted that the attacks on the village seemed to be well-planned and coordinated, with the gunmen carting away livestock and escaping through the forest.

“One of those abducted is a nursing mother who gave birth less than 10 days ago. She was abducted with her baby but the bandits returned the baby to the community after some hours.

“This was after over 40 people were killed by these gunmen; we can’t continue like this. We just buried some of our people killed, some of those abducted have family members among those killed.”

Deadly attacks have raged across Zamfara State where banditary have thrived.

Farming and herding communities in the state have long been terrorized by gangs who raid villages, stealing cattle and kidnapping residents for ransom.

On Friday last weekend, over 300 students of Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe in the Talata Mafara Local Government area of the state were abducted.

The gunmen were said to have arrived in the school around 1 am and loaded the girls in buses.

In 2019, the Zamfara State government entered a peace agreement with the gunmen.

About 15 brand new Hilux vehicles and cash gifts were also given to leaders of different ‘repentant’ gangs of bandits by the governor in 2020.

Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari while threatening the bandits, had promised hours after the abduction of over 300 Nigerian citizens in Zamfara on Friday last week promised never to allow such take place again.

Despite all these, various communities in Nigeria are still being attacked while residents are getting kidnapped and/or killed.
