Bandits have attacked Ganun-Gari in the Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State, killing one person and injuring three others.
The bandits were said to have also rustled cows and stolen foodstuffs from the nearby village of Dawakin Bassa in the same LGA.
A group, Birnin-Gwari Vanguards for Security and Good Governance, on Sunday, alerted residents to the large movement of the bandits from neighbouring Zamfara forests to Tudun-Wada Sabon Layi.
It read, “One person killed and three others injured at Ganun-Gari. The bandits are now at Dawakin Bassa, heavy gunfire at the moment. The gunshots are heard at Unguwar Zakara and Kubo villages.
“The bandits will retreat to their base after operation at Dawakin Bassa through the same route they followed.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mohammed Jalige, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, did not take his calls or respond to a text message on the incident as of press time.
