5 Zamfara Communities Attacked In 3 Days

Coming in small numbers on motorcycles, the armed gangs were able to evade security personnel and attack defenceless residents under Bugundu LGA of Zamfara State, Northwest Nigeria.

Terrorists have attacked five communities under Tofa district, Bugundu Local Government Area (LGA) of Zamfara State, Northwest Nigeria in the last three days.

On Wednesday, March 16, 2022 they attacked Dustin Zai and Gamawa, where they rustled cattle and raped women.

On Thursday, March 17, they invaded Dan Daji and Dakace, where they commited the same attrocities, while on Friday, March 18, the terrorists attacked Tungar Dorayi community around 12:30 p.m. (WAT) and carted off valuables. 

An elderly resident of the LGA who craved anonymity, further said bandits operating in Bugundu have changed their tactics to evade security men protecting certain routes.


He pointed out that the armed gangs terrorising some parts of the state now come in small numbers on motorcycles in order not to raise suspicion. In this way, they are able to catch residents unawares and defenceless.

Efforts to reach SP Mohammed Shehu, the Zamfara State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO)  proved abortive as of the time this report was filed.
