Gunmen Open Fire On Villagers In Zamfara, Over 26 People Killed (Graphic Photos)


Many people have been reported killed when armed bandits invaded two villages in Anka Local Government Area of Zamfara State. The assailants reportedly attacked a mining site at Kuru-kuru village and also ambushed some people from the neighbouring Jarkuka village as they mobilised to bring help to Kuru-kuru.

The incident occurred on Thursday, April 12, 2018.

According to reports, at least over 26 people were killed at the mining site.

It was gathered that when residents from the nearby Jarkuka came later to join the Kuru-kuru survivors in burying the dead, the gunmen attacked again, and killed more people.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, DSP Mohammed Shehu, confirmed the incident.

"We are aware of the attack but I cannot give you details now until my commissioner is fully briefed", Shehu told NAN.
