Meanwhile, the Chairman of Birnin Gwari Vanguards, Ibrahim Nagwari confirmed the incident on Thursday, October 17.

Although, the police have not yet confirmed the attack.

Nagwari said the bandits also injured three members of a local vigilante group.

In addition, many travelers were kidnapped from their vehicles in another attack around Palwaya and Ganyam villages around 5:00 pm on Wednesday.

Villagers and travelers avoid passing through the Birnin-Gwari Funtua road because of attacks by bandits.

Bandits took over the entire eastern part of Birni-Gwari bordering with Zamfara and Katsina State and attack the people at will.

The villagers called on the Federal government and security agencies to act decisively on the bandits and their collaborators to bring them to justice.
