Three persons were killed and seven others were abducted by bandits in the Dansadau community of Zamfara State’s Maru Local Government Area.
Shauntv was informed by a source in the community that the armed bandits attacked the community around 2:30 am and continued for about 4 hours until early this morning.
The bandits burned down an armoured personnel carrier belonging to the Nigerian military as well.
Bandits released 100 kidnapped victims from Manawa village under Dansadau district days ago, just a week after they shot down a military jet.
A public relations officer with the state police has promised to find out about the latest attack and report back to our correspondent.
Banditry, kidnappings, and other related crimes in the state are rife in the Dansadau community, which is ninety-nine kilometers from the state capital of Gusau.
