Bandits struck Zurmi town, the headquarters of Zurmi Local Government Area of Zamfara State on Thursday and set ablaze four operational vehicles belonging to security operatives.

“Bandits stormed the town around 4:00 pm on Thursday with sophisticated weapons and attacked the military base and the police divisional headquarters. They set ablaze four operational vehicles of the military and the police,” a resident, Muhammad Zurmi, disclosed.

Zurmi stated that the bandits abducted an unspecified number of locals during the attack.

His words: “Most residents of Zurmi town have fled to Dauran and Kaura Namoda. Already, troops have been reinforced to the area and some of them were in the forest to trace the bandits’ enclaves.

“We are living in fear; these terrorists abducted over 10 people during the attack on Zurmi town, including a nursing mother, her husband and their baby.”

Zurmi appealed to the federal and state governments to come to their rescue, pointing out that the bandits threatened to continue attacking them no matter the security operatives’ intervention.
