Bandits slaughter village head, eight others in Zamfara state

Bandits on Wednesday night in an attack which lasted for hours, slaughtered the village head of Tungar Ruwa and killed eight other residents of the community located in Anka local government area of Zamfara State.

Penpushing reports that, Zamfara State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Mohammed Shehu, confirmed the attack but as at the time of filing this report he did not give comprehensive details.

The residents of the affected community while narrating the ordeal said the bandits invaded the village on motorbikes and started shooting into the air as they rode towards the village head’s residence.

Penpushing further reports that, a source in the community said the bandits took the village head out and slaughtered him in the presence of some of his people that were also gathered by the bandits.

“Eight other people were confirmed dead when the bandits left after the attack. But our understanding is that they (bandits) came for the village head. You know when they feel a particular leader in a community is giving them troubles, they do kill him instantly”. A resident said

Penpushing also reports that some survivors of the attack explained that the bandits also stole foodstuff and domestic animals in the village but did not kidnap anyone
