Cattle rustlers kill 15 in Zamfara

Cattle rustlers have struck in Zamfara State killing 15 peo­ple at Ruwan Mesa in Bungudu Local Govern­ment Area of the state.

Condoling with the bereaved families at the weekend, the state Deputy Governor, Mallam Ibrahim Mohammed, attributed the incident to the current in­security across the country.

He said the killings could have been politically moti­vated, adding that prayers from Muslims were the only solution to the prob­lem.

The deputy governor, who was at Ruwan Mesa to commiserate with the victims’ families, advised them to remain calm and law abiding as measures were already in place to bring the perpetrators to book.

He assured them of the state government’s com­mitment to the protection of lives and property of all citizens.

The deputy governor advised the people of the community and the entire Muslim Umma to engage in intensive prayers for peace to reign in the state and country at large.

It was gathered that the cattle rustlers had stormed the sleepy village of Ruwan Mesa in the early hours of Thursday.

A villager, who identi­fied himself as Mamman Ruwan Mesa told Daily Sun that due to the attack, many people were planning to leave the village.

When contacted, the state Police Public Rela­tions Officer (PPRO), DSP Lawal Abdullahi, con­firmed the incident, adding that security personnel had been deployed to restore peace in the area.
