A school teacher and four others were killed by bandits near Layin Lasan Tabanni route in Kaduna State’s Birnin Gwari Local Government Area.

It was also reported that 16 abducted were kidnapped in the Dogon Dawa, Layin Mahuta, and Tabanni villages in the LGA’s eastern region.

This is according to a statement made by Birnin Gwari Vanguard for Security and Good Governance, which was signed by the Chairman, Ibrahim Abubakar Nagwari.
According to the group, the episodes occurred over the course of four days, from March 14th to March 19th, 2022.

According to them, bandits killed Haruna Tanko Dogon Dawa and two others on the Dogon Dawa-Zaria road on March 14.

“On the same trip, eight other people were kidnapped.” On Wednesday, March 16, 2022, one Abdullahi Abubakar, a school teacher, was killed along the Layin Lasan’ Tabanni road in Layin Mahuta (Tabanni).

“On Thursday, 17th, a 70-year-old man was also killed and seven ladies were kidnapped at Layin Mahuta Tabanni.” “Two more persons were kidnapped in old Tabanni,” Ibrahim Abubakar Nagwari said.

The Chairman further stated that after paying a N16 million ransom, robbers in the Randagi area released 32 of the 46 individuals kidnapped at Unguwar Bula and Ijinga three weeks ago.

The group also encouraged security officers in Birnin Gwari to constantly attend to crisis calls in the Dogon Dawa, Kuyello, Tabanni, and Kutemashi wards.


Baban Yara, a youth leader in Kuyello ward, claimed the late instructor was his uncle and described him as an honest man.

The Local Government Chairperson, Hajiya Ummah K. Ahmed, acknowledged the teacher’s death by bandits but stated that one other person was injured. The injured, on the other hand, has been taken to the hospital for treatment.

“I only know of the instructor who was slain and one other individual who had a gunshot wound and was treated by me.” “As a result, I’m not aware of the other cases and abductions mentioned by the group,” she simply stated.
