Bandits have attacked the Gidan Baushe village, kidnapping several people including 60 women and children.
An eyewitness, Malam Rikwanu Abubakar, claimed that the bandits moving with their cattle arrived in the village in Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara State on Wednesday afternoon to demand foodstuff from the villagers.
“When the bandits realised that the villagers were not ready to give them, they started shooting into the air and the people fled in different directions,” Abubakar reported.
Shops were set ablaze as the bandits carted away with their needed supplies and 60 women and children alongside 8 men. However, the eight men who were abducted along with the women and children were released on Thursday.
The Zamfara State Police Command has not issued a statement regarding the recent incident.
