A day after a heart touching motion at the floor of the House of Representatives by Hon. Hassan Adamu Shekarau, representing Birnin-Gwari /Giwa Federal Constituency, Armed bandits overrun four villages in his Kakangi ward in Kaduna State.
The armed bandits attacked the villages around 5.00pm on Tuesday and lasted for three and half hours. The villages are, Mashigi, Dakwaro, Sabon gida and one other village adjacent Dakwaro.
A member of volunteers, Malam Umar said so far “Ten bodies of people killed were recovered, while many are unaccounted for”.
Also the Armed bandits burnt houses and grains stock of the affected villages.
Already volunteers from the southern axis of Birnin-Gwari and Security men were mobilized to ascertain the number of casualties.
Another source said: “The affected villages are in need of aid, such as food, shelter and clothes”.
Despite this attacks and Kidnappings daily along Kaduna-Birnin Gwari road, we are saluting the Federal government and security agencies for deployment of personnel to deal with the situation in Birnin-Gwari.
We hope more troops and special police task force will be deployed.
BIRNIN-GWARI VANGUARDS FOR SECURITY AND GOOD GOVERNANCE.
