Armed Bandits Resume in Birnin-Gwari, Kill and Abduct Citizens- Says Group
Armed bandits has declared total war on the good citizens of Birnin-Gwari and commuters along the two major highways of Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna and Birnin-Gwari-Funtua.
Latest incidents is the killing of a young man Abdulkarim Bagoma, yesterday evening by armed bandits and three others sustained various degree of injuries along Birnin-Gwari-Funtua road.
While the wife of late Abdulkarim Bagoma and one other person (Ibrahim Mai alignment) whereabouts remain unknown as at this morning.
There is no doubt that the armed bandits had resumed their nefarious act of inflicting irreparable loss of lives, injecting fear, grip and sorrow on the people of Birnin-Gwari local government area as a whole and neighboring communities of Niger State.
Only yesterday, one kidnapped victim was released after payment of ransom, while the fate of kidnapped journalist his wife and two siblings for over nine days is dicey and traumatic condition as the Kidnappers has cut lines of communication.
We have for long cautioned the security agencies on the need to a pragmatic approach and strategy in their operations of uprooting all armed bandits in Zamfara state to Birnin-Gwari general area.
Although a significant success were made by the military, Police and other security personnel to clampdown these terrorists, their escape routes along Birnin-Gwari-Kaduna as well as Birnin-Gwari-Funtua road remain porous and all Kidnappers camps are active.
We are appealing to the Federal government and security agencies hierarchy to change their strategy in their fight with the Armed bandits in our territory.
As we often say: “our able, braved men and volunteers are ready to assist security agencies to confront armed bandits in our areas. Because they know the terrain”.
