A terror group killed one farmer and 11 others in two separate attacks in Nasarawa-Burkullu and Manya communities of Bukuyum Local Government Area (LGA) of Zamfara State, Northwest Nigeria on Friday, Dec. 2.
The simultaneous attacks which led to the abduction of five women and six farmers, took place between 1:30 a.m. and 3:00 a.m.
HumAngle gathered that the group invaded Shiyar Sarki area of Nasarawa-Burkullu and began shooting in the air.
A resident, Abubakar Hassanu, said “the gang kidnapped Shehu Dan’agaji in Nasarawa among the 10 abducted in Manya village. Dan’agaji left his 13 children and two wives.”
Another resident, Kabiru Sani, who narrowly escaped added: “We saw armed soldiers in the night rushing to repel the attack but could not succeed at the time.”
HumAngle was unable to get a response on the incident from Mohammed Shehu, Zamfara State Police Command’s spokesperson, despite calls put through to him.
