In Gidan Kaso village in the Birnin Magaji area of Zamfara State, a little child described how he was taught to shoot and murder by one Alhaji.
The boy stated in a now-viral video spotted by SaharaReporters that he had used his weapon an untold number of times.
He went on to say that members of the gang of bandits to which he belonged had also kidnapped a large number of women.
Some of those kidnapped, he said, were slain, raped, or tied up.
This comes after the governor of Zamfara state, Bello Matawalle, stated that young bandits were terrorizing the state a few months ago.
Bandits have thrived in Zamfara state, resulting in deadly attacks.
Gangs have long terrorized the state’s farming and herding populations, raiding villages, stealing animals, and kidnapping locals for ransom.
The state administration and the gunmen reached an agreement in 2019.
In 2020, the governor gave leaders of various ‘repentant’ bands of robbers about 15 brand new Hilux trucks as well as cash rewards.
Despite this, towns throughout the state continue to be assaulted, with residents being kidnapped and/or killed.
