President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to launch a special military task force today to fight "bandits" in north-western Nigeria's Zamfara state, reports the BBC's Abuja bureau.

A recent attack by suspected Fulani herdsmen claimed 15 lives in the state.

In 2014, more than 100 people were killed by unknown gunmen in the Maru area.
