Just In: Bandits Kill Soldiers In Zamfara Ambush

Emerging report indicates that suspected bandits have killed some soldiers at a forest in Doburu in the Zurmi Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

The Cable reports that a military source made the disclosure on Saturday, saying many of his colleagues sustained injuries in the incident.

He said some of the injured persons were receiving treatment at Zurmi General Hospital.

The source said the officer who led troops into the forest was captured by the bandits.

“We ran into an ambush in the forest today. The bandits opened fire on us and we responded but they surrounded us from different directions. They had bombs and sophisticated weapons,” he said.

This comes days after suspected bandits killed 17 people in an attack on Magami Village of Faru District in Maradun Local Government Area (LGA) of Zamfara State.

Zamfara State has witnessed a massive loss of lives and properties in recent months due to the activities of armed bandits.

It can be recalled that state governor Abdulaziz Yari had declared that he is no longer the chief security officer of the state following his inability to restore peace to troubled areas
