Armed Bandits Kill 4 Policemen in Zamfara State

Four police officers have reportedly been killed by bandits on the Gusau -Sokoto road in the Bungudu Local Government area of Zamfara.

According to PUNCH, an indigene of the area who gave his name as Haruna Musa, said the bandits, who were in large numbers, ambushed and shot the police officers on duty on the road on Monday.

According to Haruna, the police officers had mounted a roadblock on the road very close to Bungudu town when the bandits opened fire, killing four of them.

Haruna said, “The police officers were on duty and mounted a roadblock, not knowing that the bandits were hiding in a bush near the roadblock.

“The bandits suddenly came out of their hiding place and opened fire on the police officers, killing four of them.”

Musa maintained that the bandits later moved to a nearby village, rustled several animals, and stole foodstuffs.

The spokesperson of the state police command, SP Yazid Abubakar, confirmed the attack but denied knowing whether any policeman died during the attack.
