Bandits

At least 100 miners have been abducted by bandits between Anka and Maru Local Government areas of Zamfara State.

This disclosure was made by Attahiru Ahmad, Emir of Anka in Zamfara State on Tuesday, March 9, when Lucky Irabor, Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), led service chiefs on an assessment visit to the state.

The emir said the attack occurred when state officials were trying to secure the release of the 279 Jangebe schools girls. He said 10 were killed during the abduction of the miners.

Emir Ahmad stated that it is surprising that the federal government imposed a no-fly zone in Zamfara when the state does not even have an airport.

He explained that bandits far outnumber the security forces in the state and requested for the deployment of more security operatives to the state.

The emir said: ”The peace and dialogue initiative of our governor has become necessary because at the moment we have fewer than 5,000 security men fighting over 30,000 bandits.”
