Bandits have reportedly abducted over 100 persons in an attack on Mutunji community in Maru LGA of Zamfara state.

The bandits were said to have attacked the community on Friday night during Isha prayers.

The attack reportedly comes after a bandit kingpin identified as Damina gave residents of the community a one-week ultimatum to pay a levy of N50 million for their safety.

The failure of the residents to meet the deadline and pay the requested sum was said to have led to the abduction.


No death was reportedly recorded during the incident.

When contacted for comments, Yazid Abubakar, spokesperson of the Zamfara police command, did not respond at the time of filing this report.

    Did they inform the police of the said threat when it was issued and if they did what did the Nigerian Police Force do about?

    Nigeria will only get better the day Civil Servant stop acting like politicians. Because at the end of the day the issue just like every other one will be handled like a political campaign even by the NPF at the expense of peoples life and safety. But one thing is sure it can be YOU tomorrow hence think about before you speak or act.
