Residents of Zamfara State have lamented over the security situation of different towns and villages of Nahuce Local Government.

On Monday, September 7, the terrorist attacked two different towns of Yar Kaita and Garka area of the Nahuce in which they killed one person, kidnapped three youths and injured many others.
