Bandits Kidnap Zamfara Speaker’s Father, Step mother

Bandits have killed three young men and kidnapped a popular businessman in Danmusa Local Government Area of Katsina State.

Narrating the attack, a vigilante in Yantumaki said the gunmen shot at a Golf 3 commercial car travelling from the community to Danmusa on Sunday night, killing two men identified as Sulaiman and Nura Dogon Gida, in the process.

He said, “What we learnt was that the driver was asked to stop by the bandits but when he noticed that they were not policemen, he decided to speed off which made them fire at the moving vehicle.”

It was further learnt that when vigilantes and some policemen attracted to the scene of the incident by the gunshots arrived there, the gunmen escaped to a nearby village called Unguwar Kukoki, where they reportedly killed another man identified as Surajo Muhammad, who was said to be a bakery manager in Danmusa town.”

Meanwhile, the Department of State Services has confirmed the attack on the residence of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo popularly known as Sunday Igboho, in Soka, Oyo State on Thursday morning.

The secret police also disclosed that two allies of the Yoruba Nation agitator were killed during an operation at his Ibadan residence.

Recall that Igboho had raised an alarm that two people were killed during an attack on his residence in the early hours of Thursday.

There had been claims in some quarters that the activist staged the attack to stir the pity of Nigerians.

The DSS, however, at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday night, confirmed the attack on Igboho’s residence.

The spokesman of the secret police, Peter Afunanya, while speaking with newsmen also paraded no fewer than 12 suspects arrested during the operation.

He said Igboho is presently on the run but vowed that the government will definitely track him.
