Policeman, Five Persons killed, 30 kidnapped in Zamfara in One Month- House of Rep

The House of Representatives on Tuesday, 7/11/2018 raised an alarm over rising incidents of kidnapping in Zamfara State, northwest Nigeria, calling for the deployment of more soldiers in the state to bring the situation under control. The House asked the Ministry of Defence to deploy additional troops in Zurmi and Shinkafi Local Government Areas of the state, particularly Gurbin Bore town, a border town with Niger Republic.

The resolution was passed after a member from the state, Mr Abubakar Hussaini-Moriki, moved a motion to alert the House to the kidnapping of about 30 people in the last one month alone. According Hussaini-Moriki, on the night of October 26, for example, bandits invaded Gurbin Bore, killing a policeman and five other persons. He informed the House that the unknown attackers also razed 17 shops, houses and burnt 13 vehicles.
