Seven people have been killed by bandits in the Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State.
The latest incident came barely 24 hours after bandits killed 48 people in three communities in the Bakura Local Government Area of the state.
Sources in Faru told Channels Television how bandits raided the community on Sunday afternoon.
The Outlet quoting a source said, the assailants stormed the community just before 2 p.m. and started shooting sporadic.
Another source who spoke with Premium Times said soldiers brought the bodies of those who had been killed to the hospital.
“I was at the Maradun General Hospital when the soldiers brought the corpses of those killed,” Jamilu Muhammad said.
He said that six people were killed in Garin Minane and one in Faru and that the number of those dead might rise since many people are still missing in the affected villages.
“They have buried the deceased here in Maradun because going back to do the burial in the villages was impossible for fear that they (bandits) may return.”
He said that the seven people slain were all men. Four of them were killed on the outskirts of Garin Minane village on their way back from the farm.
