Bandit Terrorists Kill Five Vigilantes In Kaduna

Gunmen suspected to be bandit terrorists have killed four persons in fresh attack on Goran Namaye town in Maradun LGA, Zamfara State.

Naija News reports that this was made known to newsmen on Monday by the Zamfara State Police spokesman, Muhammad Shehu.

It was gathered that the terrorists also abducted 50 others in the attack.

According to the police PRO, the gunmen attacked the community after midnight on Sunday.

He however disclosed that Police tactical operatives had been deployed to secure the community.

Shehu also revealed that the state police commissioner he ordered operatives to conduct search and rescue for the 50 abducted victims.

He said the Zamfara police command is working with other sister security agencies to maintain law and order.

Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba on Monday told operatives of the Nigeria Police not to hesitate in dealing decisively with members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The Police boss who reiterated that the group, led by Nnamdi Kanu has been proscribed by the federal government told police operatives not to allow them (IPOB) to cause any disturbances in any location or under any guise.

The IGP issued the fresh order while speaking at Delta State during a visit to the Police Command in the state.

He cautioned that only a bridge separates Anambra and Delta States (particularly Onitsha and Asaba), hence whatever happens in either state has a great probability of spilling to the other.

He, therefore, warned the police to be ready to deal with all forms of criminality that may surface on either side of the bridge without allowing it to spill over before getting quenched.
