Zamfara in the last 7 days, like the week before it, reveals how the Military and the armed groups are engaged in a cat and mouse game. Human life remains short and brutish, as about 100 people were abducted and over 30 killed in the past week alone.
The state still suffers at the hands of armed men, including areas that witnessed a lull, following Police & Military deployments. The military is not also smiling with many of the people they were deployed to save. So far they have accused hundreds of complicity in the killings.
On Friday, four people were kidnapped in Jangeme along Gusau Magami road. The following day, three persons were also killed and scores abducted on the road to Sabon Birni from Anka by another band of armed men in #Zamfara.

ZAMFARA IN THE LAST 7 DAYS:
Thread...

Zamfara state in the last seven days is reeling helplessly, practically soaked in its own blood. Over 100 were reportedly slaughtered with as much number abducted. Some 20 students in a Madarasa are among the abducted.
The terrorists, on 27 February, 2019, invaded Kawaye village in Bagega, Anka Local government area. Witnesses report that the gunmen claimed that they came on vengeance over the killing of their members by vigilantes. They razed down houses, vehicles and everything in their way.
Kawaye village in #Bagega alone, in the course of the 27 February invasion, 13 were killed and 42 persons abducted. It was designed to be a strong message to other communities that may stand on its way.

Zamfara in the last 7 days:
One of the most brazen acts of insensitivity towards the citizenry by politicians was displayed in #Zamfara state on Sunday, 10, February, 2019 by President Muhammadu Buhari at a political rally ahead of the presidential election.
Muhammadu Buhari, a candidate of the ruling party, APC, and Commander in Chief of the Federal Republic of #Nigeria did not convey words of sympathy towards the citizens over the unceasing banditry and killings going on in the state for some years, at yesterday's rally in Gusau.
No acknowledgement, no condolences, no empathy for the millions of the people who have been marooned at their hour of greatest need by the government they elected. Many who showed up at the rally were angry, they expected president to assure them of a future that is safe.

ZAMFARA STATE IN THE LAST SEVEN DAYS
Last week I did the first edition of Zamfara in the last 7 days. The series focuses on the human calamity that is unfolding in the state & environs with a view to draw attention. In this edition I'm looking at attacks in Maru & Shinkafi LGAs.
The attacks in these Local Government Areas resulted in scores of fatalities, abduction of dozens and displacements of thousands of persons in Zamfara state.
Apart from pockets of attacks that often go unreported; the attack by bandits in Dokar Alasan village in Dangulbe district in Maru LGA on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 took the lives of 15 villagers. Within this period over 10 clusters of villages were attacked by bandits.
