Bandits Struck Birnin-Gwari, Abduct 18, Loot Food Items
After relative calm along Birnin-Gwari-Funtua road with the sustained onslaught by security forces, we regret to inform the general public of an attack at Mando village a distance of five kilometers from Birnin-Gwari town.
In the latest incident, armed bandits attack Mando shortly after midnight around 1.30 am and abducted eighteen people including four nursing mothers.
The armed bandits struck with a house to house search taken grains and other food items and property whose value are yet to be quantify.
The eighteen people abducted includes four nursing mother’s with their babies and ten able men to the bush.
We are calling on the security personnel particulaly the Airforce Field Base Birnin-Gwari that is just three kilometers to Mando and the governments to be more proactive in protecting lives and property.
We equally urged our citizen to assist in reporting suspicious elements and their collaborators.
