At least 30 people have been killed by suspected bandits in attacks on five villages of Gidan Goga district in Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State, Daily Trust gathered.

Residents told Daily Trust that the bandits stormed the villages of Sakkida, Farin Zare, Orawa, Gyadde and Sabon Gari villages on motorbikes, firing at residents, killing people and carting away cows.

“We have buried 26 so far and we are still scouting for other bodies in the bush. Some of the residents were trapped on their farms and got killed. For the first time, women were among those shot dead,” a resident, Makau Ali, said. He said the whereabouts of seven persons was not known adding that they might have been drowned while trying to cross a river to escape the carnage.

“Seven persons were killed in Sakkida, four in Farin Zare, 8 in Orawa, seven in Gyadde and four were shot dead in Sabon Gari while seven were declared missing,” he said. However, the state police command said three people were killed in Sakkida and Gyadde villages, while further attacks had been repelled.
