Alhaji Umaru Danbawan Allah, the District Head of Gada in the Bungudu Local Government Area of Zamfara State, was assassinated by gunmen presumed to be bandits.

The shooters, who assaulted the community with motorcycles on Tuesday evening, killed an unknown number of locals.

According to an unconfirmed allegation, the traditional monarch was shot and his house was set on fire after refusing to be taken by the criminals.

Bandits have thrived in Zamfara state, resulting in deadly attacks.

Gangs have terrorized the state’s farming and herding communities for years, 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.
