Terror bandits invade Shinkafi, Northwest Nigeria, attack 2 Police stations, cart away arms, ammunition

The terrorists and bandits operating in Zamfara State, Northwest Nigeria have attacked Shinkafi town, including two Nigeria Police facilities, carting away arms and ammunition as they shot sporadically in the town.

A resident of the town who confirmed the invasion of the town by the terror bandits, said it happened on Thursday evening.

He stated that the terror bandits arrived the town when residents were observing the magrib prayer at sunset and operated for over an hour. 

The source stated that the attack came following a threat letter to the community earlier that day, where two bandits’ leaders near the community, Kachalla Turji and Halilu Sububu, announced a joint mission to attack Shinkafi and its environs.

Shinkafi is the last major town on the road linking Zamfara with the neighbouring Sokoto State. Bandits had in the past attacked the town at various times.

The Zamfara State police spokesperson could not be reached due to the telecom shutdown, while the spokesman of the Nigeria Police Force, CP Frank Mba, said he had no information about the attack.
