The Sokoto state government has confirmed another attack by bandits in Rabah local government area of the state.
The state governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, in a state broadcast, said the attack occurred in Dalijan, Rakkoni and Kalhu communities on Monday, February 25.
He informed the residents of the state that 16 people died in the attack and commiserated with the people of Rabah local government area on the loss.
“I pray Allah (SWT) to forgive the deceased persons and grant us the fortitude to bear the loss.
“This sad development, once again, makes it necessary to call on our Security personnel to rededicate themselves to their more critical duty of defending the lives and property of our people,” he said.
He added that the security personnel should avoid being distracted from their constitutional role by “unscrupulous politicians who seek power at the cost of the lives of the people.”
Recently, the daughter of the chief whip of Katsina state House of Assembly, Bello Abdu Danmusa was kidnapped by suspected bandits.
Hajiya Amina Danmusa, married to one Muftahu Yakubu Ciro, was kidnapped in Danmusa town where she and her husband lives.
Although no ransom has so far been made, sources close to the family said the incident took place when the bandits attacked her residence purportedly to kidnap her husband who wasn’t available at that time.
