Two Persons Killed By Suspected Zamfara Cattle Rustlers In Kebbi

Two persons have been killed after cattle rustlers from Zamfara State invaded some villages in Danko Wasagu Local Government Area of Kebbi State.

Nafiu Abubakar, the Public Relation Officer of the Zamfara State Police Command, confirmed the development to newsmen in Birnin Kebbi on Thursday.

According to the police spokesperson, some bandits carrying dangerous weapons believed to be cattle rustlers invaded Shagel and Yar-Kuka villages of Danko Wasagu LGA in Kebbi State, shooting sporadically and carted away scores of livestock belonging to farmers in the area.

He explained that during the attack, two locals were killed by the bandits while their animals were stolen.

“The bandits, who were believed to be cattle rustlers, (invaded) Shagel and Yar Kuka villages of Danko/Wasagu LGA.

“As you know, Danko Wasagu is a local government area in Kebbi that is neighbouring Zamfara.

“So, they easily find their way into Kebbi, launch attack and run away with animals.

“On that fateful day, as usual, they launched attack on the village leaving two people dead,” he said.

Abubakar, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, added that operatives of the force have since been deployed to the area and effort was ongoing to trace and arrest the criminals.
