Gunmen On Motorcycles Kill 34 Zamfara Villagers by Gistformant: 7:09pm On Jun 16
Gunmen have killed 34 people in Nigeria‘s northern Zamfara state where criminal gangs have been terrorising remote villages, police said Sunday.

Armed bandits on motorcycles stormed into neighbouring Tungar Kafau and Gidan Wawa villages in Shinkafi district late Friday and shot dead 34 people, state police spokesman Mohammed Shehu said in a statement.

“Normalcy has been restored in Tungar Kafau and Gidan Wawa… following attack by armed bandits… where 34 people were killed,” Shehu said.

He said the victims of the attacks were buried on Saturday, adding police were on the trail of the killers.

Local residents put the death toll higher, at 35.

The bandits were said to have opened fire on farmers on their fields outside the villages and also pursued those who fled.

“The bandits killed 35 people in the attacks,” said Lawwali Madattai, a resident.

Rural communities in Zamfara state have for years been terrorised by criminal gangs who raid villages, stealing cattle, kidnapping for ransom and burning homes after looting food supplies.

The bandits are known to hide in camps in Rugu forest which straddles Zamfara, Katsina, Kaduna and Niger states from where they launch attacks on communities in the area.

Last week, at least 40 people were killed and dozens injured in raids in eight remote villages in Niger state.

These guys are Boko Haram, they should stop calling them bandits. Nigerian Army should intensify effort to wipe off these Boko Haram.

"Any national chaos or unrest that last for more than 24hrs, the President knows something about it" - Former Head of State Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida

It is time Nigerians hold President Buhari responsible for being untouched to do end all these incessant killings and insecurity in Nigeria; worst of, President Buhari has refused to sack the service chiefs who have failed in their responsibility to secure Nigerians and Nigeria...which means, Buhari is very much pleased and happy with the current insecurity situation all over Nigeria...who is fooling who

I think it is high time the Police ended up creating a Special forces unit...

Because it is obvious desperate times call for innovative measures.

Just as the Armed forces created the Special Forces to deal with Boko.
