ZAMFARA STATE IN THE LAST 7 DAYS continues to bleed. Bloodletting not abetting, conditions have remained grave and dangerous. The sources of pain for the people remain formidable.
Abductions have aggravated. Terrorists and armed bandits are spreading cruelty and calamity unchecked and unperturbed. There are no signs that military forces and the government have any strategy to counter and neutralize the vendors of death and anguish in the land.
The people of #Zamfara are bleeding both in blood and in cash. The terrorists are daily making millions, milking an already constricted populace of resources and cash, enough to maintain a steady scaling up purchase of arms and ammunition.

Zamfara in the last 7 days is a thread that focuses on the human calamity that is unfolding in the state. We noted that there was no day in the last 7 days in Zamfara that passed without an incidence of violence.
The Imam of Jakkukka, Malam Liman Umar narrated how his community of over 5000 inhabitants were all displaced on three occasions. Before the latest attack, farming activities by villagers had been discontinued as it became a source of grave danger to lives.
The Jakkukka, Kurukuru and Bawar Daji communities have moved to Anka town, the HQ of Anka LGA. They mostly sleep in open spaces and abandoned buildings. Sexual exploitation has escalated. Both the State & FG are bent on treating the calamity as a non issue to avoid media attentn.
