Bandits murdered 80 people in a single night - Sokoto community leaders write Buhari



Leaders of Sabon Birni Local Government Area under the auspices of Gobir Development Association have written President Muhammadu Buhari over incessant killing of their people by terrorists.

The community leaders in the letter addressed to President Buhari after 23 passengers were set on fire by bandits who ambushed their vehicle at Gidan Bawa Village in the local government area, said they “feel scandalised, traumatised and demoralised by the constant butchering” of their people by the terrorist groups operating in three local governments in Sokoto East Senatorial Districts: Isa, Sabon Birni and Goronyo as well as Shinkafi Local Government in Zamfara.

The leaders promised to accord the security agencies all necessary assistance in discharging their duties as the bandits are "imposing themselves as rulers and expropriating anything they fancy from the people including but not limited to cash taxes, food supply, drugs and sometimes their maidens."

The statement read;

“The above communities are daily attacked by terrorists, the most popular bandit Bello Turji and his boys who operate with brazen impunity, killing, maiming, raping and destroying our people and their means of livelihood, for no apparent reason.

“Their impunity has become so brazen to the extent of imposing themselves as rulers and expropriating anything they fancy from the people including but not limited to cash taxes, food supply, drugs and sometimes their maidens.

“Your Excellency, we have earlier on written a similar complaint after a gory incident that occurred at Garki Village, 5 kilometres away from Sabo Birni, where over 80 people were gruesomely murdered in cold blood in a single night.

“At that time we were so awe strike that we hardly had time to bury the dead bodies when the murderous terrorists struck again in another village about 10 kilometres away from there, known as Dakwaro, followed in quick succession by Gajit, Lajinge, Tarah, Unguwar Lalle, Kurawa, Gangara, Garin Idi and virtually every village around the axis leaving behind in their trail blood, tears smoke, ashes and shouldered farmlands.”
