On Saturday, bandits attacked the Gaye and Shangel communities in Kebbi State’s Danko Wasagu Local Government Area, killing two people and kidnapping ten others.
“The bandits came in large numbers on Saturday to attack Gaye and Shangel communities and carried out their lethal mission of killing two people,” a source told DAILY POST.
According to the source, five of the people they took with them were family members of a state House of Assembly member representing Wasagu.
He explained that the bandits caught the locals off guard, saying they never expected them to arrive because they would have repulsed the attack.
He went on to say that this is not the first time they have attacked communities in the area, and that residents in the affected areas are always on guard against their attacks.
He went on to say that the people of the communities are fleeing for safety to safer communities.
When contacted, Kebbi Command Police Public Relations Officer DSP Nafiu Abubakar could not confirm the incident but promised to do so once briefed.
