Zamfara Govt Seeks Support Of Residents In Fight Against Banditry

Zamafara Police have arrested seven security agents involved in aiding and abetting banditry in the state.

The state government says the suspects who have already been interrogated and confessed to the crime, have been sabotaging military operations in the state by sharing military intelligence, supplying arms and ammunition, military uniforms, and other facilities to the armed bandits to prevent soldiers from conquering the bandits.

One of the suspects was caught in possession of 20 rounds of 62mm of live ammunition at the point of handing over to the buyer, one Kabiru Bashiru of Maniya village, a suspected active bandit after receiving an advanced payment of 100,000.00 from the buyer.
