The incident was confirmed by Alhaji Abdullahi Shinkafi, Chairman of the Committee on Security and Prosecution of Bandits in Zamfara State.
The bandits, he claims, stormed the community and set fire to several homes, including the house of the State speaker.
He bemoaned the fact that this is the result of the military’s ongoing assault in Zurmi.
The government will provide support for victims and deploy more security operatives to protect the people, according to the committee’s chairman, who was in the affected community to assess the security situation.
He did not say whether any lives were lost during the bandits’ invasion, but he did say that two of the bandits’ food, gasoline, and other commodities suppliers had been apprehended.
According to him, “the suspects used boats to transport the products from Sokoto to the bandits in Shinkafi Local Government Area of Zamfara State through Issa Local Council.”
The two food and petrol suppliers, according to the Chairman, have been handed over to the police for further investigation and prosecution.
