Tragedy struck two farming communities in Zamfara State as bandits mercilessly took the lives of at least 30 farmers in separate attacks. While details are yet to be fully disclosed, the police spokesperson in Zamfara, Yazid Abu Abubakar, confirmed the grim events in two local government areas of the state.

According to sources, the assaults occurred on Thursday, ravaging Maradun and Tsafe local government areas. In Maradun, the renowned Islamic cleric Makwashi Maradun Mai Jan Baki and another individual were among the victims, with two of the cleric’s children still missing following the attack.

The brutality extended to Gidangoga village, where three more individuals fell victim to the bandits. However, the villagers retaliated fiercely, eliminating 24 assailants and recovering eight motorbikes.

Residents lamented the escalating frequency of attacks in Maradun, forcing many to abandon their homes in fear of reprisals.

Meanwhile, reports from Tsafe LGA revealed that Bilbis village bore the brunt of the banditry, resulting in the tragic deaths of 20 civilians.
