Gunmen Ambush, Kill Seven Policemen In Zamfara

Suspected bandits have killed at least seven policemen in an ambush near Zonai village in Magami District in Gusau Local Government Area of Zamfara State.

According to sources, the policemen were returning from duty where they mount­ed a check point near Zonai village along Gusau-Maga­mi-Dansadau Road on Mon­day when the bandits opened fire on the vehicle conveying them.

“It is a very sad develop­ment especially for us in Magami town because the policemen had tremendous­ly helped in stabilising the horrific security situation in this axis.

“In fact, their presence at that checkpoint had boosted the confidence of the travel­lers to ply that road. Dozens of travellers have been killed or kidnapped along the 50km Gusau-Magami road. It is re­ally sad and tragic,” Halliru, a resident, said.
