No fewer than 18 people have been killed by daredevil armed bandits during a Tuesday night attack in Kuryan Masari community in Kaura local government of Zamfara state, North West Nigeria.
The bandits invaded the community in their usual manner and began shooting sporadically. 18 vehicles including a police patrol vehicle were also destroyed during the attack.
The attack was revealed by Zamfara Activist, Yusuf Anka who tweeted about the ugly incident on his twitter handle, @ankabiy.
18 people have been killed last night in Kuryan Madaro of Zamfara by armed bandits burning down homes, businesses and 18 Vehicles including a police patrol vehicle.
The deaths and destructions are too many for the people.😢
Yesterday’s attack is one of many attacks carried out by bandits in Zamfara since the Nigerian government announced the shutdown of telecommunication networks in the state, a decision many Nigerians including Anka have continued to question it’s sincerity of purpose in the ongoing military operations in the state.
