Armed terrorists on Wednesday, March 30 and Thursday March 31, 2022 displaced over 500 residents of Birnin Magami Local Government Area (LGA) in Zamfara State, Northwest Nigeria.
In two separate attacks, the terrorists sacked two communities, Gidan Katakare and Tsalki Dagasa, leaving many displaced, including women and children.
“The gangs shot one on the neck who died on the spot. Another was shot in the chest and leg and was transferred to Federal Medical Center where he’s receiving medical treatment,” Ridwan Kanu, a resident, told HumAngle.
The terrorists also rustled cattle worth millions of naira. A police officer who craved anonymity added that people fled to Modomawa community for their safety.
When contacted via telephone, Shehu Muhammad, Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Zamfara State Police Command said he had no comments to make.
Zamfara State is one of the epicentres of terror attacks in Nigeria and the North in particular.
Recently, some communities under Maru LGA of the state paid not less than N50 million to appease terrorists, but they were still attacked.
