After gunmen suspected of being bandits invaded various towns in Zamfara State’s Anka and Bukkuyum local government areas, almost 200 dead were found and buried.

Barayar Zaki, Wanu, Rafin Gero, Laho, Lallaho, Kurfar Danya, Dutsin Dan Ajiya, Tungar Geza, Kewaye, and Tungar Na More are some of the communities.

Over 200 bodies have been discovered from bushes, according to SaharaReporters, while some people were caught off guard on their farmlands.

According to accounts, roughly 140 vigilante members were buried on Friday in Kurfad Danye alone.

On Wednesday, the robbers, numbering around 300 and armed with modern weaponry, rushed the neighborhoods on motorcycles and began shooting intermittent gunshots.

Terrorists also looted property, kidnapped, and displaced a number of people, including women and children, in the impacted areas.

Banditry had blossomed in Zamfara State, and deadly attacks have raged across the state.

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 killed.
