Bandits Gun Down Policeman At Checkpoint




Bandits in Zamfara State have attacked a police checkpoint at Tazame village, killing one officer and injuring others.

The checkpoint is located less than a kilometer to Kwatarkwashi, a town next to Gusau, the state capital.


According to Daily Trust, the bandits riding over 40 motorbikes stormed the checkpoint around 4:am on Sunday, February 25, 2024.

A source said the bandits burnt all the valuables they found at the checkpoint before they zoomed off.

“The bandits overpowered the policemen on duty because they exchanged fire with them for some minutes before they overrode the police and set the place on fire,” the source said.

“I learnt that the remaining policemen ran for their lives. The bandits outnumbered the police, hence, the police could not confront them in a gun battle. We are lucky some of the policemen escaped from the scene otherwise the story would have been different by now.”
