Unknown Gunmen Kill Village Head In Zamfara

The Police Command in Zamfara State has confirmed the killing of the village Head of Kujemi, Mallam Gambo Kujemi, in Dansadau District of Maru Local Government Area of the state by bandits.

A statement issued by the spokesman for the command on Monday, SP Mohammed Shehu, also said the bandits also killed one other person.

Shehu said the village head, who was on a visit to Karauchi, also in Dansadau, was killed when the bandits attacked the village.

He explained that they stormed the village in large numbers on motorcycles about 8.40 pm on Sunday and shot sporadically.

According to the spokesman, the village head and a resident of Karauchi, Mustapha Halilu, were killed during the shooting.

Shehu said, “On receipt of the information, a combined team of policemen attached to Operation Puff Adder in conjunction with the military were dispatched to the area, to forestall a further attack on neighbouring villages as well as to arrest the perpetrators of the dastardly act.

“The command appeals for continued support and cooperation from members of the public by giving useful information on activities of the criminal element with a view to taking proactive measures.”

He, however, said peace had been restored in the area, while combined security forces were on the trail of the attackers.
