Residents of Gurbin Bore town in Zurmi local govt area of Zamfara state were under attack by bandits yesterday night killing and burning peoples properties worth millions of naira.
The bandits according to one of the inhabitants of the town said: “The bandits entered the town at about 9.30pm and started shooting sporadically and also setting peoples properties ablaze”
As at the time of this report no official figures of death or lost of properties are known but unconfirmed report indicates that a police vehicle was burn and a police officer might have sustain injuries.
Zurmi local government has been at the centre of bandits activities in recent times. Many villages and towns are living in fear as result of the growing insecurity in the area.
The gigantic efforts of FG and Zamfara state government to stem the tide by increasing the level of troops and heighten operations in the area provided only a temporary respite as the bandits are now back in the game of killings and abduction of people for ransom.
