Armed bandits have again attacked Dansadau community in Maru Local Government Area of Zamfara State, killing three persons and abducting 7 others.

A source in the community told Channels TV that the armed bandits stormed the community around 2:30 am and the attack lasted for about 4 hours till the early hours of this morning, Friday, July 23.

He also confirmed that an armoured personnel carrier belonging to the Nigerian military was also set ablaze by the bandits.

This attack is coming barely a few days after 100 kidnapped victims from Manawa village under the Dansadau district were released by the marauders, and barely a week after a military Alpha jet was shot down by gunmen in the state.

The state police command is yet to confirm the latest attack. Dansadau community is about ninety-nine kilometers from Gusau the Zamfara State capital and is one of the hottest zones in terms of banditry, kidnappings, and other related crimes in the state.
