In the Shinkafi Local Government Area of Zamfara State, Bandits have reportedly gone berseck over the arrest of their Leaders father.
According to Malam Ahmed Shinkafi, an indigene of the area, the security agents in Jigawa State arrested the father of a bandits’ leader called Turji.
“Turji gave an ultimatum to the security agents to release his arrested father before Eid-el-Kabir or he would terrorise the whole area.”
The bandits have since started unleashing mayhem on the people of the area since the bandit father’s arrest.
He claimed that they have already kidnapped many people.
“The villagers are in a terrible situation because of lack of food and shelter as many of them are squatting at Shinkafi local government secretariat.
Speaking on the incident, spokesperson of the police command, Mohammed Shehu, said the father of the bandits’ leader was not arrested in Zamfara State.
