Bandits Kill Traditional Ruler, Two Others In Sokoto



JUST IN: Gunmen Abduct Two Students In Plateau

Gunmen suspected to be bandits on Wednesday evening invaded Tunga community, Illela Local Government Area of Sokoto State.

The gunmen, who attacked the community on motorcycles killed the village head and two other people.

A source that spoke on the development noted that the traditional ruler was shot dead after refusing to be kidnapped by the bandits.

This is coming a few days after gunmen invaded the Amarawa community, also in Illela LGA, killing at least 10 persons.

“More than 10 villagers were killed while houses and other properties were destroyed.”

“Many others have fled their homes to seek refuge in nearby communities within the local government area.”

In another development, Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, on Thursday disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s shoot-on-order is hindering the release of the abducted students of the Federal College of Forestry Mechanization, Kaduna.

Naija News had earlier reported this month that the President directed security operatives in the country to shoot-on-sight any criminal carrying AK-47.
