Terrorists killed three persons and cut off a 13-year-old girl’s hand in Keku village, Bungudu Local Government Area (LGA) of Zamfara State, Northwest Nigeria.
The attack took place on Friday, May 27 at around 9 a.m. WAT.
Those killed include “Kabiru Tambayu, 27, Maryam, 49, Hambali and Ahmadu, 53, at Gidan Matsa area”, Kasimu Muhammad, a resident of Kekun Wajje said. Hajara, the 13-year-old, later died at Bugundu General Hospital due to severe bleeding, Kabiru Kasimu, a relative, told HumAngle.
