“As I’m talking to you, the bodies of the victims are being recovered and we have concluded arrangements for their burials,” a resident identified as Musa Damaga told Daily Trust.

When contacted, Police Public Relations Officer in the state, SP Muhammad Shehu, simply said: “Give me some time I will get back to you.”

Zamfara is one of the states where bandits have made life a living hell for the people.

Worried by the high rate of attacks, President Muhammadu Buhari had declared the state a no-fly zone and also banned mining activities.

He had also ordered the deployment of 6000 troops in the state.
