Hundreds of people are said to have been slaughtered in a nighttime raid by bandits in Kebbi State, according to SaharaReporters.
According to reports, bandits in huge numbers attacked Dan-Kade community in the Zuru chiefdom’s Unashi area on Sunday night, killing an unidentified number of people.
Bello Dankade, a resident of the hamlet, informed SaharaReporters that groups of bandits raided Dan-Kade in southern Kebbi State and slaughtered a large number of people.
“Many people were killed and their bodies were burned,” he said. “We can’t say how many people died right now.” “We’re left wondering why terror-related fatalities appear to be on the upswing, especially in the North-West,” Dankade bemoaned.
Residents of Dan-Kade village have left their homes after bandits allegedly set fire to a number of homes in the vicinity.
Mani John, the commander of a local Vigilante organization in Zuru, confirmed the attacks to SaharaReporters as well.
As of the time of reporting this story, the Kebbi State Police Command could not be reached for comment.
