Bandits burn down police outpost, houses in Zamfara

Bandits on Thursday burnt down a police outpost, shops and three houses in Zugu village of Bukkuyum Local Government Area ofHe said after the attack, many residents deserted the community to Bukkuyum and other villages in neighbouring Gummi Local Government to seek refuge.“Bandits from Gando forest carried out the attack. What I was informed by some of the residents who fled to Bukkuyum town was that the three of the houses were those adjacent to the police outpost.

“What we believe is that the bandits returned into Zugu to neutralise the policemen in the outpost located in the village. The bandits know that the policemen would respond to distress call so they decided to attack the outpost first,” he said.He said many of the wounded sustained gunshot wounds while others were injured in the stampede that ensued as people tried to escape from the gunmen.

Bandits have been terrorising North-west and parts of North-central Nigeria, killing and displacing hundreds of people and rustling domestic animals. Farmers have been chased from their farmlands while hundreds of students abducted. Hundreds of people have been killed and displaced from their homes.
