Dansadau community under Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara State, was again attacked by bandits who killed at least three persons and abducted seven others.
According to sources, the armed bandits attacked the community around 2:30am and the attack lasted for about four hours till the early hours of this morning.
The source also confirmed that an armoured personnel carrier belonging to the Nigerian military was also set ablaze by the bandits.
The attack comes barely a few days after 100 kidnapped victims from Manawa village under the Dansadau district were released by the armed bandits, and barely a week after a military Alpha jet was shot down by bandits in the state.
Meanwhile, the state police command is yet to confirm the latest attack, as the state’s Public Relations Officer promised to investigate and get back to newsmen.
Dansadau community is about 99 Kilometers from Gusau, the Zamfara state Capital, and is one of the hottest zones in terms of banditry, kidnappings and other related crimes in the state.
