Multiple sources told our reporter that the bandits attacked the places while riding on motorcycles, killing several unsuspecting persons in the process. In Sabon Layin Galadima area of Faskari LGA, the bandits attacked at about dawn with locals putting the death at 11 persons. However, the police spokesman in the state, SP Gambo Isah, said information before the police showed that only one person was shot in his face adding that he is alive and receiving medical attention but admitted that animals were rustled with only one person injured too. Five persons were reportedly killed on Tuesday morning at Mara Zamfarawa village in Dan Musa LGA with many animals rustled. Locals say the bandits attacked farmers working on farmlands also.
