Bandits

Alhaji Zubairu Jibril Mai Gwari II, the Emir of  Birnin Gwari, has spoken on the attack on him by bandits.

The traditional ruler revealed that the bandits attacked his convoy with the aim of killing him.

According to him, he was fortunate that he was not in the convoy when the attack occurred.

The Emir added that if the bandits were in his domain because of gold deposits, let them explore it and leave his people alone.

Emir Mai Gwari said: “At the last minute, I decided to ask for relief from the Nigerian Air Force. They were the ones who brought me to Kaduna that evening. That’s how God made it.

“I was not in the car but it is clear that the bandits targeted my car, and Allah protected my driver and my orderly. Only my car got some bruises.

“But clearly the aim was to kill us. If you see the bullet holes on my car, on the windscreen and the side where I usually sit, the aim was clearly to kill us, by the Almighty decided otherwise.”

Further, he disclosed that the bandits who have been operating in his area since 1994, have moved from cattle rustling to armed robbery, and now kidnapping.
